Ian Edward Hirst to stand trial

Thumper 2 July 2007 15

Narrabundah resident Ian Edward Hirst is to stand trial for the murder of David Peter Bagnall at the Fraser Court complex in Kingston last December.

In the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday, Magistrate Michael Somes said “I am satisfied that it can be proved by a jury beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Hirst did commit the offence of murder.”

Magistrate Somes continued Hirst’s bail with a $10,000 bond, which includes reporting to a police station twice a week.

Hirst is due to reappear in court next Thursday for a directions hearing

Although the accuracy of you’re assessment of one time RiotACT hack Vg is astonishingly perceptive, you’re still not excused.

It’s a blatant attempt at advertising Pappa’s BBQ pizzas. Obviously.

I don’t often visit this site nor read the comments, but I felt I had to respond to Vg’s comments of 17 December 2006 which I have only just read.

Big man, small willy I suspect and clearly talking through his large, hairy butt-cheeks.

Pappas is an outstanding advocate with a remarkably impressive “strike-rate”. I can only imagine Vg is regurgitating the mantra of Pappas’s detractors without having any first-hand knowledge or has, at some stage, been shown by Pappas’s famous cross-examination to be the vacuous nit-wit his comments would suggest he is, his only comeback being to post anonymously about someone whose ca-ca he is not fit to sniff.

The police may whinge and complain about Pappas but I know from first hand experience they too go running to him for representation if they or their family or friends are in trouble.

The truth is Pappas is not that expensive nor that exclusive and, again from first hand experience, I can say he is worth every cent. Hirst clearly needs good representation and he has it.

Vg and other “experts” should wait for the result of the trial. Lets not overlook that rather fundamental precept of our criminal justice system the “presumption of innocence”.

Uber wealthy father that’s put up the money for the bail + the defense. Hirst made nothing of himself sweating on the inheritance from the old boy kickin’it…trouble is he just won’t kick it.

And if so what was he doing in welfare housing?

Why does Hirst have access to ‘unlimited money’?

I hope justice and not just Hirst’s access to unlimited money (and therefore top notch counsel) prevails.
