LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION
QUESTION NUMBER 335
Mr David Eastman - Appeal Costs
What are the expected costs to the ACT of the forthcoming appeal by David Harold Eastman?
Mr Humphries - The answer to the member's question is as follows:
As was published recently in The Canberra Times, Mr Eastman applied unsuccessfully to the Legal Aid Commission for assistance to pursue his appeal.
The Director of Public Prosecutions has not yet been apprised of the settled grounds on the appeal and, until such time as they are, any answer I might make as to the costs of this side of the appeal would be speculative.
