Text:Publisher Barry Colman says he has at least 10 leads on new information in the Peter Ellis case after offering a $100,000 reward for people to come forward. National MP Katherine Rich, one of the sponsors of a petition that aims to force a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Ellis's convictions, says that it will be hard for Justice Minister Phil Goff to ignore this. Rich's petition, which collected the names of 140 prominent New Zealanders as well as some members of the public, was opened up last Tuesday nationwide by the launch of a website http://www.peterellis.org.nz/, which contains a downloadable version of the petition which can be signed and sent to Parliament free of charge. So far, a total of 1200 signatures have been collected. “Concern for the case is growing on a daily basis,” says Rich.
