Text:Justice Minister Phil Goff's decision to ignore the Peter Ellis petition currently circulating in Parliament is the result of bad advice from the Ministry of Justice, says Ellis book author Lynley Hood. Hood also dismisses Goff's assertion that new evidence is required for further investigation of the case. "There is a raft of law professionals who signed the petition who are saying there is widespread perception that the justice system has failed, and failed catastrophically at many levels," she said.
