FORMER Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks will go from broke to millionaire overnight if he accepts the a huge offer from 60 Minutes to tell his story.
The Channel 9 show has put $1million on the table for an exclusive interview with the convicted terrorism supporter.
With the queue of media outlets begging to interview with Hicks first now numbering 40, his lawyer David McLeod said he had “not heard” about the $1 million bid from 60 Minutes which could trump them all.
But Mr McLeod said his client was focusing on getting his life together.
“(Hicks) hasn’t made up his mind whether or not he wants to tell his story, so no decision has been made, as far as I know,” Mr McLeod said.
As I see it this story is either true, and part of a publicity campaign, for the interview on Sixty Minutes, or it is just bullshit intended to tell Davo that his story is still worth big money, I just love the way the piece ignores the fact that as a convicted terrorist Hicks would have any payment confiscated by the Commonwealth under the proceeds of crime act…. and rightly so.
In any event the public already know the whole story so my guess is that were Hicks to speak to the media what he may say would be nothing new to tell anyone .
