Strictly Business.. attire

Hicks must persuade judge of his guilt

The Governor-General, Michael Jeffery, yesterday signed the agreement between the US and Australia on the transfer of prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.

Only the US will be able to pardon Hicks, the Attorney-General, Philip Ruddock, said.

However, Terry Hicks is flagging his determination to bring a legal challenge.

Australia's sovereignty (via Hicks) is getting absolutely reamed. The irony is it is being signed off by the Queen of England's rep.

As John Clark playing Lex Downer put it on last night's 7:30 Report, "Hicks had to be locked up for 5 years so he could get a fair trial."

Sweet absurdism.
