Bain compo bid Judge appointed

A Canadian judge has been appointed to assess David Bain’s farcical claim for wrongful conviction and imprisonment.

Power announced today the appointment of Justice Ian Binnie, a retired Canadian Supreme Court Judge.

“Due to the long-running and high-profile nature of the case, and after consultation with Mr Bain’s lawyers, it was decided a judge from outside New Zealand would be appointed,” Power said.

Binnie was a Queen’s Counsel (Ontario) in 1979 and served as the Canadian Associate Deputy Minister of Justice from 1982 to 1986. He has served on the Supreme Court of Canada for more than 13 years.

Power said that Canada has a compensation regime with similarities to New Zealand’s.

“Justice Binnie’s appointment is a significant step in attempting to resolve Mr Bain’s claim for compensation and a step towards achieving finality in this case.”

David Bain has never been found innocent. You’d have to be certifiable to believe the cock and bull story that Robin Bain did it.

Occam’s Razor suggests that when there are 4 dead bodies and one person remaining alive and uninjured that that “survivor” would be real helpful in assisting the police with their inquiries.

I’d give him a dollar and tell him to get on with his life.
