BREAKING | Harriet Wran speaks after walking out of NSW prison

The daughter of late former New South Wales Premier Neville Wran was released from prison on Tuesday morning.

Harriet spent two years behind bars at Silverwater Jail for her role in the robbery and murder of a Sydney drug dealer.

All eyes have been on Silverwater since the State Parole Authority signed off on the 28-year-old’s bid for freedom on Friday.


On Tuesday Harriet didn’t try to dodge the media scrum, instead she walked toward the pack with her mother Jill and spoke.

Harriet said “I’ve really just come to implore you to understand that I’m still very much in recovery, it’s going to be a long process and it’s going to be hard and I ask you to understand please to let me do what I have to do in private”.

She finished by saying “thankyou so much” and refused to answer any questions before heading quickly to a waiting car where her brother Hugo was waiting.

Wran was sentenced in July to four years in jail for being an accessory to the fatal stabbing of Daniel McNulty, 48, in a Redfern housing commission unit in August 2014.
