W ottgtiacfr y safar FRIDAY, MARCH 0, Î&23. A Pccniinv StutemcJit. During the-hearlng of the Gavin case at the local Police Court Sub-inspector Farrel made a statement concerning the Press. The statement we refer to? was one in which Sub-inspector Farrel said that Mr. Peter- son had his own Press reporter -present, that Mr. Peterson was -indulging in camou- flage as the whole of the cross-examination was .-being taken down--question and an- swer. Again, later in the proceedings, when Mr. Peterson stated "I cannot put. the Press in the box, the Sub-inspector states I haye bought the PressT" Mr. Farrel rose ex- citedly and stated "Yes, and 1 repeat it." We take it that the \yord "bought" used by Mr. Peterson meant "bribed", arid we also take- it that the Sub-inspector endorsed that meaning when he said "Yes, and I re- peat it." Such statements are alomst with- out parallel in police court proceedings in Queensland, , and there can be no excuse for Sub-inspector Farrel: He is a...
