Families of murdered children distraught over govt decision

THE families of three Bowraville children whose murders remain unsolved are devastated the NSW Government will not call for a Royal Commission into their deaths.

NSW Attorney-General Greg Smith has been under pressure to reconsider his decision not to re-open the investigation into the 90s murders of four-year-old Evelyn Greenup, Clinton Speedy-Duroux and Colleen Walker since hundreds of protestors marched on Parliament House earlier this year.

Clinton's sister-in-law Leonie Duroux said the family had hoped a meeting with Mr Smith this week could have brought the news they were waiting for, but instead family members left feeling "disheartened and disgusted".

She said Mr Smith would not commit to a royal commission or parliamentary inquiry as he did not believe there was enough evidence to support them.

Ms Duroux said the fight for justice was not over and she would be working with her lawyers and family to consider their next step.

NSW Greens MLC David Shoebridge is expected to call for parliamentary inquiry next week.
