  • The Breaker play comes at a time when the Australian government, through the attorney general is considering making representation to the British government about the case for pardons that I initiated in late 2009. I recommend the Ken Ross play to anyone interested in getting an idea of what injustice Lieutenants Morant, Handcock and Witton endured. The evidence I have uncovered raises serious doubts that these men were tried and sentenced according to the laws of 1902. Defence counsel for these men maintained their innocence for the rest of his life and I have petitioned the British and Australian governments to convene an independent inquiry to assess the case for pardons.
