Hon Amy Adams is reported to have rewarded David Bain with $925 000 as an ex gratia payment for the costs of being an ingrate after ex High Court Australia Justice Ian Calinan concluded Bain had not proven his innocence in the killing of his Dad Robin, Mum Margaret, sister Arawa brother Stephen and sister Laniet beyond the balance of probability.
I suppose as a small victory Robin is now excluded as a suspect.
I opined at the time of his acquittal in an rather inexplicable verdict at a second trial Bain should just slink away and be extremely grateful he had secured his freedom and maybe buy a LOTTO ticket. Nothing in the intervening years has led me to alter that opinion.
I wonder how many Melanoma sufferers who have never had as much as a parking ticket could have benefitted from an earlier funding of Keytruda with that almost one million dollars that is clearly a just shut up, depart and don't come back Hush payment. Of course it is all on top of the disaster that was Bennie, two trials and god only knows how much more the long suffering taxpayers have flushed over the twenty two years of the saga.
Wonder why I am thinking thirty pieces of silver right now.
