Hoddle Street killer denied computer again

first_imgThe Hoddle Street mass murder, Julian Knight has been denied a computer in his cell, for the 14th time. Justice Emilios Kyrou on Wednesday rejected Knight’s application to seek permission from the Victorian Supreme Court for a review of a Corrections Victoria decision to not allow him to have a computer. Justice Kyrou said the case was foredoomed to fail and that it would constitute an abuse of process. He said it was Corrections Victoria rather than the judiciary that administered the laws relating to prisoners. “As a result, Corrections Victoria is far more knowledgeable and experienced than this court can ever be about issues concerning the management of prisoners, including education, welfare and security, that inform the framework within which decisions affecting prisoners are made,” Mr Kyrou said. Knight is allowed to access a shared computer in the prison. He indicated that he would appeal the decision. Knight is serving a minimum 27 years for killing seven people and injuring 19 others in a shooting spree at Hoddle Street in inner Melbourne in August 1987.
