Dustin Martin is now one of the AFL greats. A grand final victory and Brownlow Medal this season, and Dusty’s only just beginning. But he’d gladly give it all away just to have his dad back home with him in Australia. His father was deported to New Zealand last year as part of a blitz against foreign-born criminals and bikies. While Shane Martin has never been jailed for any offence, a convicted killer who’s been jailed 16 times has been allowed to stay. Sunday Night’s Alex Cullen asks why, as Dusty and his family prepare to take their case all the way to the High Court.

Rahni Sadler reports.
