Saint John Police statement regarding His Majesty the King versus Robert Mailman and Walter Gillespie


The Saint John Police acknowledges the Minister of Justice’s decision to order a new trial and the subsequent court proceedings which resulted in a verdict of not guilty for both Robert Mailman and Walter Gillespie.

To better understand the Minister’s conclusion in determining “that there is a reasonable basis to conclude a miscarriage of justice likely occurred”, the Saint John Police will be seeking the final results of the Department of Justice’s review of the case and rationale that that led today’s outcome.

While we respect the judicial process, we are deeply concerned with the impact it may have on all parties involved. We remain dedicated to upholding the highest standards of justice and will continue to work diligently to do so.
