Text:The publisher of the National Business Review is offering a $100,000 reward to anyone who can come forward with new information on the Peter Ellis case that can force a Royal Commission of Inquiry. Barry Colman admits that it is an extraordinary offer, but it is an extraordinary case. Since the reward announcement yesterday, Colman has received plenty of interest but no new information from members of the public. "It's a big step to take and the people who worked on the case are feeling defensive," he said. Two former police officers are among many who have called to pledge their efforts to uncover new information, but are not interested in the money. "It just reflects the huge unease the New Zealand public have about this case," Colman added. The reward is being offered for one month, and any new evidence will be examined by Ellis book author Lynley Hood to determine whether it can be classified as “new”. Hood, along with National MPs Katherine Rich and Don Brash will be administering the distribution of the reward also.
