Leave it to the sys­tem

The Press - - Perspective -

I have no idea whether David Bain was guilty or not. Nor do I care. We have a sys­tem of jus­tice to deal with crime, and in his case it did. Af­ter a mis-trial, he was ac­quit­ted. That should be the end of it.

How­ever, your (ad­mit­ted) ob­sessed re­porter is drag­ging the whole thing up 20 years later to make money out of un­in­formed spec­u­la­tion. Johnny Moore in his mag­is­te­rial col­umn (July 28) drops a few snide com­ments show­ing what he thinks of David Bain. All this sim­ply em­pha­sises how lucky we are to have an un­bi­ased jus­tice sys­tem. John Burn Merivale
