    New Evidence Reveals Peter Ellis Inquiry A Sham - 7-Dec-2007
    Peterellis.org.nz spokesman Richard Christie reports that new research into the Peter Ellis case casts doubt on the safety of Ellis' convictions. The research reveals that Sir Thomas Eichelbaum's Inquiry was carried out in a manner designed to bury rather than examine doubts previously raised by three of the world's foremost experts on children's testimony. It calls into question the conduct of officials and has ensured that the case will not be going away anytime soon.

    RNZ must say sorry to Ellis - 16-Sep-2005
    Radio New Zealand has lost an appeal against a Broadcasting Standards Authority ruling that it apologise to convicted child molester Peter Ellis.

    A City Possessed: The Christchurch Civic Creche Case - 21-Aug-2005
    by Lynley Hood
    A City Possessed is a strong, compelling and shocking story about one of New Zealand's most high-profile criminal cases - a story of child abuse allegations, gender politics and the law. In detailing the events and debates leading up to and surrounding the Christchurch Civic Creche case, Lynley Hood shows how such a case could happen, and why. Her penetrating analysis of the social and legal processes by which the conviction of Peter Ellis was obtained, and has been repeatedly upheld, has far-reaching implications - not only for our justice system, but for the way in which we see ourselves.

    The Burden of Proof - 12-May-2005
    Is the Government ever going to swallow its pride and vindicate Peter Ellis, or are they happy to sit back and wait for history to repeat itself?
    By Anthony Frith
    Early last month, convicted child molester Peter Ellis suffered a heart attack. Ellis may be a chain smoker who is partial to red meat and the odd tipple, but the most probable cause of his condition appears to be stress. Ellis has waited nearly two years for a select committee to decide whether to recommend a Royal Commission of Inquiry into his 1992 conviction of multiple counts of child abuse. His case is almost unanimously regarded as the greatest miscarriage of justice this country has seen since Arthur Allan Thomas. Peter Ellis has been waiting a long, long time for justice, and at the rate things are going, time may be running out.
