Justice Minister Judith Collins says she will release
David Bain's controversial compensation claim report after
Collins has been criticised for her decision to have Justice
Ian Binnie's report peer-reviewed by Robert Fisher QC.
She said Binnie's report made assumptions based on incorrect
facts and showed a misunderstanding of New Zealand law.
She also accused the report of lacking a "robustness of
reasoning" in justifying its conclusions.
The Justice Minister today said she would make the findings
public after lunch.
Bain's lawyer Michael Reed said the was a step in the right
direction, but they wanted to see it before it was made
"I would think we would need just a few days because as I say
the Crown's had three months, and even though we're usually
faster than the Crown, we would like a few days."
