Bulletin: Teina Pora; New Zealand; Brother of murder victim supports his release on bail pending appeal to the British Privy Council, saying Pora, who has been in prison for 21 years, "wasn't guilty." NZ News.

STORY: "Burdett brother: Release Teina Pora," published by NZ News on March 29, 2014.

GIST: "The brother of murder victim Susan Burdett wants the man convicted of killing her freed from jail. Teina Pora has had his application for bail denied ahead of his Privy Council Appeal, with the High Court saying it does not have the jurisdiction to grant it. But Jim Burdett hopes he gets parole at his hearing on Monday. "The only reason he's still in jail is because he wouldn't admit guilt," says Mr Burdett. "He would have been release by now if he hadn't. It seems clear why he hasn't admitted guilt, and that was because he wasn't guilty. I think releasing him would be both just and compassionate."
