POST: "Eastman witnesses asked to "please explain," by Courts Reporter Michael Inman, published by the Canberra Times on May 6, 2014.

GIST: "It is understood Victorian forensic scientist Robert Barnes, whose work helped convict Eastman at trial, and the Australian Federal Police were among those to receive a notice. Mr Barnes is thought to have run out of funds for his legal team and it is unclear how he will respond. His analysis of gunshot residue provided a critical link between Eastman and the murder scene, and helped eventually secure the conviction. Mr Barnes’ work on the case was put under the microscope during the recent public hearings, leading to allegations he overstated the strength of the evidence and allowed "unacceptable confusion" in the labelling of exhibits."
