Collins says no as media ramps up campaign

Judith Collins has poured rather icy cold water on the aspirations of the media led campaign to free a twice convicted scumbag.

The Justice Minister is refusing to hold an inquiry into the Teina Pora case, despite new revelations made by 3rd Degree calling into question his conviction for the 1992 murder of Susan Burdett.

Judith Collins says it’s up to the courts to rule on the matter.

Pora’s lawyer expects to lodge papers with the Privy Council by next week.

Ms Burdett was brutally raped and murdered back in 1992, and Pora went down for it. The Police Association has joined opposition parties in calling for an inquiry.

But Ms Collins today said no, it’s a matter for the courts. 

No matter because Paula Penfold is busy promoting the cause and enlisting more people to it, now producing T-Shirts to treat Teina pora as some sort of modern age Che Guevara.

Wasn’t that nice of hubby to retweet? So sweet.
