The father of one of the choirboys who accused George Pell says he fears for victims of child sexual abuse following the quashing of the cardinal's conviction. He told Crikey in his own words how yesterday's decision made him feel.
I'm bitterly disappointed with the decision. I felt that justice wasn't done.
The County Court conducted a five-week trial and he was found guilty. The Victorian appeals court dismissed his appeal there, and he's gone to the High Court and they’ve overturned the decision. I don't think that's justice. I think what they've done is they've done the legal fraternity an injustice in this country.
