Just 11 days after the election and

Julia Gillard has already broken

her first election commitment.

She says the assembly was only ever

a mechanism to gain support for a price on carbon pollution.

Am I going to get hung up on a

mechanism? No. Am I hung up on an

outcome? Yes, I am.

She says both major parties have to

compromise to win support -

something Mr Abbott's office has

acknowledged in writing. The

Opposition Leader accuses Bob Brown

of selling out his integrity.

This is a Labor Party which

deserves to lose and yet this is a

Labor Party which Bob Brown has

thrown a lifeline to.

The Independents spent the day

being briefed by Treasury on the

coalition and Labor's costings. The

PM is calling on Tony Abbott to

Mathew Newton's ex fiancee, Rachael

Taylor, has formally applied for an

apprehended violence order against

the actor. Taylor's lawyer lodged

the papers in Sydney this morning.

It's alleged Newton bashed the

Transformers star twice while they

were holidaying in Rome last month.

Why did she feel it was necessary

to do this? Because she's coming

back to Australia, so she has fears

for her safety so she wanted to

make sure she took out an order

that prevented him approaching her in any way.

The matter will be heard later this month.

The NRL has called in the Police to investigate suspicious betting activity surrounding a match

between the Bulldogs and the North

Queensland Cowboys. Gambling

agencies raised the alarm, when 95%

of bets for the round 24 match were

waged on the Cowboys scoring the

first points with a penalty goal.

The NRL formed a panel to review

the game before referring the

matter. No accusations have been

made against players of either side.

Betting on Cricket matches

involving the Pakistan team could

be banned after a review by the

state government. International

administrators are talking tough on

match fixing. But Pakistani

officials have refused to suspend

three players arrested over the betting scandal.

Angry Pakistani cricket fans burnt

an effigy of captain Salman Butt

over the latest match fixing

allegations. Once heroes, they're

now more like gamblers says this

man. In Somerset, members of the

touring team trained ahead of a

match against the local county side.

But no sign of 18-year-old fast

bowler Mohammed Amir, captain

Salman Butt and opening bowler

Mohammed Asif. They'll meet the head of Pakistan's cricket board

tomorrow but haven't yet been suspended.

They are normal, they are here,

obviously they're human beings and

they would be under pressure. The

dismal performance of the Pakistani

team in Australia last summer could

now become part of the ICC inquiry

into the match fixing scandal.

The Sydney Test match, if that

match was thrown by the Pakistan

team, that's probably the most

serious allegation and the question

then raises, if they threw that

match, they could be involved in

further match fixing. Simon Katich

didn't suspect match fixing.

Probably people might have had

every right to feel something might

have been happening but we won't

know until they get questioned

about it. I guess we must

acknowledge that this is quite sad,

it's very disappointing, it's not

good for the reputation of the game

but we will clean it up. The NSW

and Victorian governments are

examining whether to ban betting on Pakistan teams.

The search has widened in the

Belanglo forest for any clues to

this week's discovery of human remains.

Crime Reporter Daniel Sutton went

behind the police tape today. Dan,

how big is this search operation?

Police said sealed off an area

about 50 metres in either direction

from where these bones were found.

They're going through all the dirt

and Moshe grain by brain. A

mechanical see if there was brought

in today to look for evidence and

further bone segments. They also

use a metal detector to spot

anything metallic. Keys or possibly

weapons as well. They also used the

line researchers. To make sure none

of the evidence is Moss. Today

became a homicide led investigation.

The postmortem is still under way.

The indications are dairies one set

of bones but, again, we are

searching the areas to cover all options.

Are we any closer to knowing who

the remains might belong to?

Police confirmed what we reported

last night, they believed it is a

female but are looking at three

cases in particular. 15-year-old

just go up small, abducted from

Bathurst. Janine Vaughan, also

suspected of being murdered after

getting into a car. They are also

looking at murders committed in

1987 where two young schoolgirls

were abducted, raped and murdered.

Their bodies have been found but

police are looking into whether

there were any further victims.

Paul Hogan's legal team says the

actor can be kept in Australia as

the battles the Tax Office.

But Paul Hogan says he is not

afraid of a jail and will go

bankrupt before handing over a cent.

It could be a very long time before

Paul Hogan is able to leave

Australia. That time line is

possibly 2, 3 or 4 years and that

would be obviously quite horrific

personally to him and his wife.

The Tax Office placed a Departure

Prohibition Order on the veteran

actor when he returned for his

mother's funeral. He had been

warned of the risk.

Someone who, in full knowledge of

what he is facing, has voluntarily

come in and out of Australia 12 or

13 times since the investigation

has started.

In the Federal Court, the Crime

Commission and Hogan's accountant

debated whether 1,200 pages of

documents should remain

confidential. As the lengthy legal

battle draws on, Paul Hogan says

he's prepared to fight the ATO to

the bitter end, even suggesting

he's being held for ransom. A tax

department employee is able to make

an order stripping a citizen of his

rights to travel. His lawyer would

not rule out a settlement figure

being reached. Hogan though, won't

admit any guilt. I've paid too much,

I've paid more than a wise

businessman would have. If I was a

tax evader, which I am not, I must

be the dumbest one in the world.

One outcome is certain, Hogan faces

massive legal costs. We've brought

together a team of people we think

are the best tax experts in Sydney

and we have lodged objections to

the entire assessments. The 70-

year-old says he's not afraid of

going to jail. And he'd rather go

bankrupt than pay up to $150

million in reported back-taxes and

penalties. I could pay 10% of it,

and then say please take this and

let me go, bugger 'em.

50 Iraqis were killed in violent attacks.
