Hi Friends. Welcome to the blog of the Pine Gap trial, held in Alice Springs. For a background of the case and our group, and other stories please see www.pinegap6.org. At the bottom of the page is a photo of the four accused (from left) Jim Dowling; Donna Mulhearn; Bryan Law and Adele Goldie arriving at court on the first day of the trial, Tuesday 29th of June 2007.

Day 2 am- from Jess

We had the jury ‘empanelled’ (ie chosen) this morning, held in a closed court. So when the supporters returned, we were faced with the 14 faces of the people who would be deciding the fate of the case.

The prosecution spent quite a bit of time getting chummy the jury. He clarified that the “bar table” was not something you drank at, noted the supreme court garb as “ridiculous outfits” and made a comparison of the Judge being like an umpire in a footy or rugby match. Who knows what the jury thought of his address, or indeed our mates sitting next to the team of 9 lawyers beside them!
