What’s next for George Pell

Mike Stanton, a barrister and spokesman for Liberty Victoria, tells The Saturday Paper it was a “resounding judgement” that has not dramatically changed the landscape of jury trials.

“I don’t think this has rebalanced the scales of justice,” he says.

“What the High Court found was that there was a body of exculpatory evidence that was not really challenged and that evidence, that opportunity evidence, had to create a reasonable doubt.”

Witness J’s lawyer, Dr Vivian Waller, agrees with this assessment.
