‘Payback 7’: victim may have had genitals burned

See story posted Day 4, April 3 for medical evidence which does not support account of burning to genital area.

DAY 3

 

Kumunjayi Pollard’s calvary may have included having his genitals burned. Medical evidence has not yet been given in this hearing into whether six men will stand trial for the murder of Kumunjayi Pollard, and a seventh for being accessory after the fact. But today an eyewitness, Petrina Andy, told the Alice Springs Magistrates Court through an interpreter that she had seen one of the men charged with his murder getting petrol and burning him on “the privacy part of the body”. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

 

Pictured: Charles Creek in the stretch alongside Schwarz Crescent, one of the locations where Kumunjayi Pollard was assaulted, dying as a result.
