Testimony puts footy star at the scene of the alleged crime: Liam Jurrah was "hitting" victim with a machete

Report # 3. Posted 4:40pm, July 23. See earlier reports below.

 

The court heard today from two witnesses, Allan Collins and Esau Marshall. Their evidence in chief had been tendered in writing. Cross-examination by Mr Tippett went to two matters in particular: one, that they had been drinking – "half shot" as opposed to "full drunk", they both said; two, that it was dark at Little Sisters Town Camp where the critical events unfolded.
Both witnesses put Liam Jurrah and Christopher Walker, whose nickname is "Mini Me", on the scene as perpetrators in the attack on Basil Jurrah, together with a third person.

Mr Marshall, questioned by prosecutor Steve Robson in order to "rehabilitate" his evidence after cross-examination, said he had seen Basil Jurrah lying on the ground; Liam Jurrah was "hitting him" with a machete, and Christopher Walker had an axe and "was pounding it on Basil", on his legs and his head.
