Anne?s plight draws mixed response
THE story of a Yeppoon woman forced to live in a fire-gutted home for almost a year met with mixed response from Morning Bulletin readers yesterday.
Our front-page article highlighted the plight of Tanby Road resident Anne Aboud, 54, who spent nine months in jail before being cleared in 2004 of her boyfriend's murder.
She had been unable to pay for repairs to her home after being left more than $300,000 out of pocket after her assets were seized to pay legal bills.
One caller felt little sympathy for Ms Aboud, saying she should sell her 8ha property "on prime real estate'' and buy another house.
However, others were supportive, like Tanya Donovan, of Rockhampton, who offered Ms Aboud a fridge and a small wall unit.
Alex Gartlan, Melissa Cupitt and John also offered support.
Due to correspondence received yesterday, The Morning Bulletin wants to make it clear that we contacted Ms Aboud for her story.
