Martin Bryant will be released from Risdon Vale Prison effective immediately, after a new ruling in the Economic Zone Formerly Known As Australia that the victims of the Port Arthur Massacre died of COVID.
The ruling came after the coroner’s report, infamously cancelled shortly after his initial trial began, found that the victims all died from COVID19 and that the gunshot wounds were not the cause of death.
Bryant’s lawyer said that this was a pivotal victory in a highly controversial event in Australia’s history.
“There’s never been a proper inquiry or trial into what happened, a shame that it’s taken this long but now we know why,” lawyer Chris L’iare told reporters.
“COVID is to be taken very seriously, and it’s obvious that it’s been covered up for the last 26 years.”
Bryant will be released tomorrow with John Howard yet to respond.
