Thirty-three years after David Tamihere was convicted of the murders of Swedish tourists Urban Hoglin and Heidi Paakkonen the case is being heard in the Court of Appeal on Tuesday.

He was granted a rare Royal Prerogative of Mercy in 2020, after two key elements of the Crown case were proven wrong.
