David Bain wins Re-trial

Five Law Lords in London, sitting on what is expected to be the last New Zealand case to appear before the Privy Council, quashed Bain's convictions for murdering his parents, sisters, and brother in 1994 and ordered a new trial. However Bain will have to remain in prison awaiting that retrial. 

The Privy Council said the case featured unusual circumstances and may have constituted a "substantial miscarriage of justice".

You have to wonder why Clark got rid of the Privy Council.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
