Group Description

8 October 2003

The group is to allow discussion of all aspects of the Christchurch Civic Creche case in which Peter Ellis was convicted.

The group is unashamedly supportive of Peter Ellis, but letters covering all views are welcome. Supporters of Peter Ellis believe that an open discussion will only serve to make the injustice that Peter has suffered much clearer.

Topics of interest will include,
(1) How the child sexual abuse hysteria (or witchhunt) of the early 1990s provided a climate in which Peter was able to be convicted.
(2) All aspects of the book "A City Possessed" written by Lynley Hood.
(3) The justice system in New Zealand, especially in relation to crimes of a sexual nature.
(4) The trial,subsequent appeals, and the Thorp Report and Eichelbaum Ministerial inquiry.
(5) Child Suggestibility - and all aspects of memory.
(6) The role of the Police in the Ellis case
(7) The role of Social Welfare interviewers in the Ellis case. The "Toddler Testimonies"
(8) The role of the parents in the Ellis case. The allegations of "Nathan" and his mother.
(9) The role of the prosecutor, judge, and expert witnesses in the Ellis case
(10) The role of the ACC in the Ellis case
(11) The call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry. The stubborness of the Minister of Justice, Phil Goff in refusing to hold such an inquiry.
(12) Any other subject relevant to the case.

Correspondence should refrain from personal attacks on any individual, and deal with the issues associated with the case.
