Former Mildura cop Denis Ryan has updated his book about his fight to bring a paedophile priest to justice.

FORMER Mildura detective Denis Ryan has released an updated ­version of his book Unholy Trinity with a new chapter.

Unholy Trinity documents Mr Ryan’s story as a young detective in Mildura in the 1960s who tried to bring paedophile priest Monsignor John Day to justice, only to be blocked by the Catholic Church and the police force. 

He was forced out of Victoria Police in 1972 without receiving his pension, which led to a 46-year battle for justice, which he won in May last year when he received compensation from the State Government.
