Joint statement on Eastern Freeway tragedy sentencing

The sentencing today of Richard Pusey over his involvement in the Eastern Freeway tragedy will come as a devastating disappointment to the families of the fallen officers, Victoria Police and broader Victorian community.

The utterly reprehensible actions and commentary of Richard Pusey in the immediate aftermath of the Eastern Freeway incident has left a permanent mark on every Victorian.  

Today our thoughts and those of so many Victorians are with the family, friends and loved ones of Glen Humphris, Kevin King, Lynette Taylor and Joshua Prestney who have lost so much and who so courageously have spoken out about the impact of this heinous crime.   

This case yet again demonstrates the dangers faced each and every day by frontline members of Victoria Police and the need for the justice system to always put the interests of victims at its core.
