The Facts of The Case

 

Home
Dan Mori

 

 

 

 

Advocate, Jim Unkles has enlisted the assistance of Dan Mori, fomer US Marine lawyer and counsel for Australian and Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks, to prosecute the case for over turning the convictions and sentences against Morant, Handcok and Witton.

Mr Mori, who now resides in Melbourne and works for Shine lawyers, said that he understands the importance of the case and believes the evidence should be tested in court on the basis that the three Australian veterans were denied due legal process according to the Military law of 1902.

Mori said, 'This case of Australian military history should be resolved and I am pleased to support Jim Unkles who has done an impressive job in reviewing the case in an attempt to deliver justice to the descendants of these men and all Australians who believe in trial according to law.'

The Boer War and Lieutenants Breaker Morant, Peter Handcock and George Witton

Between 1899 and 1902, 16,000 men went from Australia to the Boer War in South Africa, more than 500 of them died there. Australians who served also included an unknown number of Aboriginal trackers.

Six Australians received the Victoria Cross in South Africa, and many others received other decorations.  Though the nation honoured its dead with ceremonies and monuments, the enormity of the following two world wars overshadowed the legacy of this terrible and bloody conflict. It should always be remembered that the Boer War soldiers are the precursors of the Anzac Legend.
