Extradite Selwyn Leeks!

PRESS RELEASE from the Libertarianz Party

Extradite Selwyn Leeks!

Libertarianz health spokesman Dr Richard McGrath today threw his party's support behind efforts to bring to justice the doctor who tortured children and adolescents at Lake Alice mental hospital in the 1970s.

"Dr Selwyn Leeks is said to be practicing in Melbourne, and the government don't seem to want him stand trial." he said. "Helen Clark and Annette King would rather fleece taxpayers to compensate the torture victims instead of asking Dr Leeks to put matters right himself."

"I demand that this brute be made to face his victims and compensate them. Slobodan Milosevich was extradited and made to stand trial, and so can Selwyn Leeks."

ENDS
