John SilvesterWIMMERA people will have a rare opportunity to hear from two top police officers and Underbelly author John Silvester at the Blue Ribbon Foundation Crime Night tonight.
The Horsham branch’s third annual crime night will be at Wesley Performing Arts Centre at 7pm, costing $30 a person.
Money raised will go towards Wimmera Base Hospital’s emergency department.
Experienced police officers Rod Wilson, investigator of the Frankston triple murders in the 1990s, and Bernie Jackson, who assisted in the recovery from the Solomon Islands tsunami, will join Silvester.
The Age crime reporter is renowned for his entertaining story-telling.
Silvester told the Mail-Times he was looking forward to speaking at the crime night, where he would focus on telling stories of Melbourne’s underworld war.
“Most people in Victoria are pretty interested in the underworld war we’ve gone through,” he said.
“Whether you are from country Victoria or Melbourne you know the streets where this occurred.”
Silvester said that while the underworld war was past its peak, it had left a lasting legacy and criminals such as Tony Mokbel were still awaiting sentencing.
“Most players are either locked up or dead, or in the case of Carl Williams – both,” he said.
“We’ve lived through quite interesting times. For me, it’s been like having a really good seat at the movies.”
Tickets are available from the Mail-Times and Horsham Police Station.
