​Statement on case of Roseanne Beckett

Issued: Monday, 23 November 2015

The State has agreed to pay Roseanne Beckett nearly $4.092 million in damages.

This relates to two counts of malicious prosecution.

Payment for Ms Beckett will be made shortly.

After 26 years this saga must end.

This is the right thing to do.  

Her case is extraordinary and requires a sensitive response after so long including 10 years of imprisonment for Ms Beckett.  

Roseanne Beckett has been through enough and should not have to fight the government anymore.

She deserves the right to move on.
