Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton wants those responsible for wrongly accusing her of her daughter Azaria's murder to do something to help other miscarriage of justice victims.

One Tuesday a Darwin coroner found that a dingo did take the 9-week-old form a tent on Uluru, a case which divided and gripped Australia for 32 years.

Ms Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton was jailed for life for murder and served three years before her conviction was overturned.

Her Christchurch-born former husband Michael Chamberlain was also convicted of being an accessory.

The couple endured four inquests and a royal commission, an ordeal that wrecked their marriage and scarred their children.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton told Radio New Zealand today many people had come forward to apologise to her, but there were some involved in getting her convicted who were yet to say sorry.

"I've got a punishment I'd like to see for certain individuals who have been involved with this case, deliberately misconstruing the truth. I reckon it would be really nice not to do it again, to see them have to pay in a charitable fund for other victims for where the system had gone wrong.

"If they did that I'd know that they'd put their bad behaviour behind them and really meant they were sorry. I doubt that it's ever going to happen but just because I've moved on doesn't mean I condone what they've done and it doesn't mean they should be allowed to do it to other people."

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton is writing a book about her ordeal, which she says is about forgiveness.

"I don't have to forgive them I just have to forgive myself for letting them disrupt my life and take over my head space for a while and give the pain they've caused and the responsibility for the pain they've caused back to them.

"If, in the future, having done that, they are sorry and come and tell me they are sorry then I can forgive them because I have already moved on and they are now in a position where they are moving on and want to make things right and that's fine by me."

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton thanked New Zealanders who had supported her over the years, especially those who had written her letters while she was in prison and those who had contributed money to her legal battles.
