Munce Update 3: Appeal Will Take 6-12 Months
Gail Munce also told Radio 4TAB her family is currently "putting together the application for an appeal, which is a totally different process to what has gone on in the past. It's a new legal team that will come in & take us through the next step. We have an Australian QC on our team, along with 2 barristers from Hong Kong who know how the system works over there & have access to quite a lot of back-up & technical support." But she noted: "We spoke to people at the (Australian) consulate & they are saying appeals are normally heard within 6 months; but then the legal people are saying 6-12 months. So either way, it's not going to be heard within a month."
