New Judge Appointed to Review Bain case for compensation application

A new judge has been appointed by the government to determine whether or not David Bain is innocent on the balance of probabilities.  It is Ian Callinan, a retired judge of the Australian High Court.  First he has to show that David Bain has shown he is innocent on the balance of probabilities and after that, innocent beyond reasonable doubt.

Read about it in the Herald here.

The requirement of innocent beyond reasonable doubt is a new one and was not asked of Justice Binnie.
