Trial of the decade booked


Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News
Trial of the decade booked
Police plan to open a hotline in a search for new evidence after the Solicitor-General yesterday ordered a retrial for David Bain. The trial is likely to be in Dunedin early next year. Detective Superintendent Malcolm Burgess said from Christchurch last night that a Dunedin police team had already completed initial preparations for further inquiries and analysis of new evidence in case a retrial was ordered. Solicitor-General David Collins, QC, announced yesterday, 13 years and one day after the murders of Bain's parents and siblings in their Every St, Dunedin, home, that Bain was being ordered back to court.

This time around it won’t just be Bain on trial, it will be the NZ justice system, so many questions about how just our judicial system is has been thrown up by this case, for example several of the Appeal Court Judges who are now on the Supreme Court would have previewed this case and it seems highly unlikely that they would have ruled against their own previous rulings. The system has to prove that it can get it right because currently by recharging David Bain looks like it is only acting to protect its authority.

It's great they're going to retry this case - once the jury have made a decision, whether guilty or not guilty, hopefully that will be the end to it. It's not about people's personal feelings towards David Bain, it's about him getting a fair trial free from the miscarriages of justice evident in the original one. Wonder if he did it.
