Dear Radio New Zealand

Laniet Bain was not 'having an incestuous relationship with her father'. Robin Bain was raping his daughter.

It's not that hard.


PS Why are you even talking about this? If she was alive she would have name suppression. Why isn't their a course on reporting on sexual violence with respect and accuracy in journalism school?

    The news media is reporting the claims of incest as they are a central part of David Bain's defence case. Journalism students are also told they can't report the names of sexual violence victims but as you mention yourself, that rule doesn't apply to dead people.
