  • Marcus Einfeld, jailed on Friday for perjury and obstruction of justice is appearing now on 4 Corners – http://tinyurl.com/dzt25n #
  • Einfeld says he cannot explain why he lied in a sworn statement. In other statements, Einfeld says he isn’t fundamentally dishonest. #
  • Einfeld: “I just did it… totally mad & outrageous thing to do and I did it.” #
  • Einfeld talks of lying to a journalist and says he doesn’t put that in the same category as other lies… #
  • Do you have a habit of dishonesty, Einfeld is asked….”that’s a bit offensive… I just made a mistake.” #
  • What is the mistake? Einfeld: “Telling a lie.” A mistake because I had chances to get out of it and I didn’t take them. #
  • Einfeld says he had dug a hole for himself and just couldn’t see a way out of it. #
  • Einfeld is the first judge of the Federal Court in Australia’s history to go to jail. He has a record of human rights activism. #
  • 4 Corners interviews people who have worked with Einfeld. Some idolise him, others say is headstrong, won’t take advice, hard to work with. #
  • @salisburydowns Indeed! His story is absorbing because of the conundrum that sees a man of his distinguished record throw it all away. in reply to salisburydowns #
