Letter to The Editor - There are high stakes here

To The Age         Unlike Victoria's Director of Public Prosecutions, I hope that the High Court consents to hear the appeal by Cardinal Pell against his conviction ("Court told to sound final bell on Pell", 9/10).  The dissenting decision in the Court of Appeal by Justice Mark Weinberg is enough to show that there is some genuine doubt about the result of this case to date. The DPP does not seem to have found an error in his approach.  Since it is such a high profile matter, with intense emotional investment by large numbers of the public both for and against Pell, a third examination of all the evidence to date by our highest court is warranted. There are high stakes here. The accused must be given every possible chance to answer the charges against him. Only then can the matter be laid to rest with propriety.
