– Joe Hallett, friend of James Kouzaris
"It was through your deadly action that you have taken us all on a journey to hell during the last 12 months.
Mr Hallett described the victims as
decent human beings [who] would judge a person by what is on the inside."
"They were two of the good guys in life. You pierced their hearts with bullets and you robbed my friends of their dignity, their freedom and their future.
