Father: Truth about Azaria's death has taken too long

The father of Azaria Chamberlain, the baby girl who a coroner has ruled was killed by a dingo in 1980, has spoken about the importance of getting to the truth about the eight week-old's death.

Following the ruling in a Darwin courthouse, Michael Chamberlain said the 32-year case had "taken too long", but "I am here to tell you that you can get justice, even when you think all is lost".

"If you know you are right, never give up on getting it right when the serious issue could affect the life and livelihood of others," he added.

Earlier, a coroner had made a final ruling that a dingo dog took baby Azaria Chamberlain from a campsite near Uluru (Ayers Rock) and caused her death.
