Courts Judgment Justice 

Criminal law - Parole – s74AAA of the Corrections Act 1986 (Vic)
In Minogue v Victoria [2018] HCA 27 (20 June 2018) the High Court held that s74AAA of the Corrections Act 1986 (Vic) does not apply to the plaintiff. In 1986, the plaintiff and a group of others placed a stolen car with an explosive in the vicinity of public buildings in Melbourne, including the Police complex and the Magistrates’ Court. The car exploded and killed Constable Angela Taylor. The plaintiff was convicted of Constable Taylor’s murder as a part of a joint enterprise in which the particular parts of the accused could not be proved. He was sentenced to life imprisonment with a non-parole period of 28 years. The non-parole period ended on 30 September 2016. On 3 October 2016 the plaintiff applied for parole. On 20 October 2016, the Parole Board decided to consider the application.
