If I have over-stepped the mark by posting here, then please feel free to tell me.
I am researching an incident which occured at either the Private Bin nightclub or JD’s nightclub in the mid 1980s – possibly 1985 – but I cannot be sure.
According to my recollection, a man was seriously assaulted by another man. The injured man was in a coma for about 3 months, and subsequently died as a result of his injuries. A man was arrested and he went to trial for manslaughter – I believe he had an ethnic name – possibly Eastern European. (There is reference to a manslaughter in a nightclub in the 1989 ACT Legislative Assembly Hansard, but I believe it occured several years earlier – I think).

Any ideas on how I can get further information would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have any further information about this incident?
Searching through Canberra Times microfilm at the National Library will prove to be a long tedious task, so I thought I’d try here first.
Your assistance would solve a mystery.
