The ban on the Nine network’s, gangland miniseries, Underbelly has finally been lifted, with the Supreme Court ruling on Monday that edited versions of the series could now be aired in Victoria.

Justice Peter Vickery handed down the ruling. Previously Supreme Court Justice Betty King suppressed the series on the grounds that the TV series could prejudice the trial of Evangelos Goussis.

The suppression expired when Goussis was found guilty of Moran’s murder in May but Director of Public Prosecutions Jeremy Rapke warned against publication of any part of the series in Victoria while other criminal trials linked to the underworld were pending.

The 13-part Underbelly series, which premiered in most of Australia on February 13, portrays the underworld wars which raged in Melbourne from 1995 to 2004.
