Bowraville murder families have chance to vent their grief

THE families of three children murdered at Bowraville in the early 90s, have until the end of this week to have their voices heard on the floor of NSW Parliament.

For more than 20 years, the families of four-year-old Evelyn Greenup and teenagers Colleen Walker-Craig and Clinton Speedy-Duroux, have been campaigning for justice for the three children whose deaths have never been solved.

While their calls for a royal commission into the murders and the police investigation at the time have been rejected by the NSW Government, a motion moved by Greens MLC David Shoebridge last year ensured they would at least have the chance to vent their grief before the state's decision makers.

The Upper House inquiry, before the Standing Committee on Law and Justice, will look at and report on the impact the murders have had on the Mid North Coast community.

Submissions close on Friday.
