Louise Milligan knows the Pell case well: she won the prestigious Gold Quill for her coverage, and her book Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell – infamously removed from Victorian bookshelves during Pell’s trial – was awarded the 2017 Walkley Book Award. She speaks with The Saturday Paper’s Martin McKenzie-Murray about the long and emotional journey from breaking story to conviction.
Martin McKenzie-Murray is The Saturday Paper’s chief correspondent. He is a former speechwriter, The Age columnist, adviser to the chief commissioner of Victoria Police and the author of A Murder Without Motive.
Louise Milligan is an investigative reporter for ABC TV Four Corners and author of Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell, which won the Walkley Award and broke massive international news about Cardinal George Pell's crimes against children, for which he was later convicted and imprisoned. Louise was a witness in his court case.
