Ready to use. 3174246 $1450 A SURVIVOR of the Territorys worst mass murder has renewed calls for its perpetrator to never be released ahead of his parole hearing next month. Douglas Crabbe, now 69, was convicted of murdering five people after driving a Mack truck through a brick wall at the Inland Hotel in Uluru on August 18, 1983. Crabbe was initially sentenced to five consecutive life sentences, without the possibility of release. He was later given a 30year non-parole period by the NT Supreme Court and has since been moved to Perth on compassionate grounds. The Western Australian Prisoners Review Board (PRB) will review Crabbes eligibility for parole in the coming weeks. Survivor Lydia Hannah said Crabbe should never be released and should be made to serve his original life sentence without release. Hes a mass murderer and killed five people and maimed 16 others and history shows we dont know what happens when people come out again, she said. I would like to see him serve the sentence he was originally given for the crime. I dont think its appropriate for mass murderers to walk our streets. It was a horrific crime, in the top three mass murder incidents in Australia. Ms Hannah was standing with four of her friends next to the wall of the Inland Hotel when Crabbe ploughed through with a 25-tonne truck. The impact killed her friends and left Ms Hannah in a critical condition with severe head injuries, which left her on a two-year journey to recovery. At the Inland Hotel that night, I was there as a patron standing with four of the people that were killed. One of the reasons Ill talk about it is for them, because the victims get forgotten about it in all this. He didnt use a gun or a bomb; he used a prime mover, a 42-wheeler Mack truck, which is horrific when you think about it ploughing into a hotel full of people. She said every time Crabbes release was raised she relived the horrific events. He was never to be released. He was never charged for all the mayhem he caused to everybody else. He got charged with the five murders but a lot of other Killer must rot in jail Parole for murderer opposed by survivor Douglas Crabbe, now 69 (inset), was convicted of murdering five people after driving a Mack truck (above) through a brick wall at the Inland Hotel in Uluru on August 18, 1983. He is now potentially eligible for parole despite being initially sentenced to five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of release.
