Borce Ristevski's refusal to talk spoke volumes in the Court of Appeal
Ristevski's determined stonewalling raises the question about his punishment and that of others - should silence become an aggravating factor in sentencing? His silence featured throughout the Court of Appeal justices' remarks about their decision to increase the sentence from a nine-year maximum to 13 years behind bars (the third judge, Justice Phillip Priest, differed from the two other judges in arguing for 12 years).“[Ristevski] did more than maintain his right to silence.

On The Sunday Project tonight, Jack will say she was told anything she came into contact with prior to the test could have contaminated her sample.
She will say: 'There was a case in the past called the "kiss cocaine case" where someone had taken cocaine and then the partner, who was an athlete, kissed that person and they were contaminated because they had contact with something someone else had taken.'
That may have been a reference to Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber - who was allowed to compete at the Rio Olympics despite testing positive for cocaine.
He avoided a two-year suspension after claiming succesfully the drug was passed on to him when he kissed a woman he met on Craigslist.
Jack will also reveal the financial strain she had placed herself under to clear her name.

'I'm 21-years-old and I'm paying for a lawyer, a barrister, testing fees - it's more than what my parents could pay, with them having a house mortgage. I didn't want them to have that, so I have taken all of the hit.'
The former World Aquatics Championships silver medalist added her partner Joel Intala, a hockey player, had helped her get through the torment of social media bullying.
'Recently, I had one of those days and the one thing he did was just bring my dog, Hugo, in. That dog made a big difference in my life. My dog wouldn’t judge me. He knows when I’m upset,' Jack said.
If the 21-year-old fails to prove her innocence to ASADA (Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority), she faces being banned from the sport for up to four years.
Leaving a hearing in August, she said she would leave no stone unturned in her quest to clear her name and return to swimming.
'I'm really happy with how everything is going,' she said.
'I'm not going to stop until I prove my innocence and fight to get myself back in the pool because that's my dream and I'm never going to let that go.'
Jack was part of Australia's 4x100m freestyle team that set a world record last year.
