I wrote last week that I’d probably have little to say about the Tony Veitch case now that it’s before the court. I also wondered if the news media would do the same.
No chance actually. Now I find myself back in it too; trying to make sense of the spinning. I read this stuff and feel like it’s a public rehearsal of Tony Veitch’s defence arguments. It is trial by media. Only in this case it’s the complainant who seems to be in the dock.
The Sunday papers are all over the story again this week with revelations about the incidents covered in the charges laid against Veitch a week ago. The Veitch saga: What Kristin told police (SST) Water assault charge for Veitch (HoS)
But what really caught my eye was another interview with Zoe Veitch in the Sunday Star Times.
