George Pell 7 – Vic Police 0

BREAKING: George Pell’s appeal to the High Court has just now been declared successful, his convictions quashed and that a verdict of acquittal be entered in their place. Wow!

Verdict was 7-0

There was “a significant possibility that an innocent person has been convicted because the evidence did not establish guilt to the requisite standard of proof.”

Some other interesting points about how the Vic Court of Appeal watched the video testimony of the victim before giving its judgment, and that in the High Courts opinion, this should not be done (other than in the most exceptional circumstances)!
