'The barrister turned informer was burning the candle at both ends. She'd lost more than 40 kilograms and was often in tears. Some police suspected Ms Gobbo had a psychiatric condition. She worked long and "excessive" hours, and called her police handlers "at least" several times a day, seven days a week to pass on information about her clients. And almost every night she was out partying with those very same clients.
...

"On occasions when [police] handlers did try and draw away from and limit contact with 3838, such actions would invariably stimulate 3838 to become even more productive with offerings of intoxicatingly valuable information," he wrote.

"[Informer] 3838 can be described as a complex character, who despite frequent protestations about assisting police, seemed to have some form of addiction to the relationship and was committed to fuelling its continuance whenever scaling back or discontinuance threatened."'

Police 'forgot' to inform the royal commission about Gobbo's history as an informer

https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/police-forgot-to-inform-the-royal-commission-about-gobbo-s-history-as-an-informer-20190520-p51pda.html

"Victoria Police will not comment on why Mr Paterson, a highly-regarded officer who holds one of the most influential positions in the force, did not inform his superiors about his discovery of Ms Gobbo's 1995 registration more than half a year earlier.

Mr Paterson, who was not available to be interviewed, has not been disciplined over the affair."

Just a heads up to anybody with the interest and opportunity to watch the 'Lawyer X' Royal Commision.

Live streaming via this link: https://www.rcmpi.vic.gov.au/

Watched a bit of Paul Dale in the box yesterday. Other cops, bent or otherwise, under questioning today.

And, here we go: https://www.lawyersweekly.com.au/wig-chamber/26165-man-convicted-of-murder-to-walk-free-after-nicola-gobbo-revelations?utm_source=LawyersWeekly&utm_campaign=26_07_2019&utm_medium=email&utm_content=1


The judgment isn't yet on-line. I assume there will be written reasons for the decision. If there are, I will post the link in due course.

Here's an article about the verdict of acquittal issued out of the Court of Appeal this morning. The article contains a link to the submissions of the Respondent (that is the DPP) which set out the ridiculous circumstances of the case and concede that that the appeal must succeed.
