Petitions for Review of Courts Martial Convictions
Australian lawyer Jim Unkles has submitted two petitions, one to Queen Elizabeth II, and the other to the House of Representatives Petitions Committee. The petitions have been referred to the British Crown by the Attorney-General of Australia. The British Government is considering the petition on behalf of the Queen and has yet to announce a review. The second petition was considered by the Petitions committee on 15 March 2010. Unkles appeared before the committee, along with others including historian Craig Wilcox.[3] Committee member Alex Hawke MP stated, "There is in my view serious and compelling evidence that some form of redress should be given all these years later to those men executed by the British"(Hansard Transcript, House of Representatives Grievance Debate, 15 March 2010).
