Joe Karam fails to prove David Bains innocence.

Joe Karam has failed in his bid to secure a compensation payment for David Bain from the New Zealand Justice Department. This was brought about unsurprisingly by his complete failure to supply any convincing evidential information to Justice Callinan, “the person given the job of deciding if David Bain was innocent on the balance of probabilities”.


Brilliant.  Sometimes Karma does not wait for reincarnation before taking effect.  Sometimes it happens within the same lifetime.  Let's consider the following:  

Where in the world is Joe Karam?

Need I ask?  Well, yes, actually, I do.  The compensation bid has reached its final pinnacle and there is not a word from Joe Karam.  In the past we have had Third Degree docos and Judicial Reviews in the lead up to Balance of Probability reports being released by distinguished overseas judges.   Callinan's report has not been made public, but we do know that he has finished and handed it in.  We have no idea what it says.  Surely Joe Karam has read it, if he is still David Bain's primary advocate.

Justice Binnie: Is this a case of sour grapes?

Opinion: Justice Binnie has accused the government of "shopping around to try to get a report that will allow it to dodge paying up", because they have rejected the report that he prepared for them in 2012, in which he recommended that David Bain should be awarded compensation for his alleged false imprisonment.  However, the retired judge, reportedly at least, illustrates perfectly why his report was rejected by standing by his recommendation that David Bain should be awarded comp
