Re: “A top cardinal’s sex-abuse conviction is huge news in Australia. But the media can’t report it there”, The Washington Post, December 12.
The Australian Victorian Supreme Court has issued a suppression order on the publication of the outcome of the trial of an internationally well-known personality on serious crimes, of which the jury unanimously found him guilty.
The suppression order includes a ban on publication of the name of the convicted person and the crimes for which he has been found guilty.
But that suppression order does not apply to Thailand, yet The Nation has not published a word about this case, which is of international concern and interest.
Why the Pell not?
