The verdict on Mhelody’s death where the murderer was allowed to walk free is a despicable miscarriage of justice. It not only denies the victim justice, but it reinforces the structural violence against women.

It sends the chilling message that the lives of the vulnerable like Mhelody, a Filipino transwoman who was in Australia as a tourist, does not matter. We cannot stress enough the cruelty of her death, and yet, while the Philippine government neglects her the Australian government coddles her perpetrator.
