Where a compensation order is contemplated1 the injury, loss or damage need not be inflicted intentionally2, although it must result from the offence for which the order is made3. If the offender is acquitted of an offence alleged to have resulted in personal injury, loss or damage, but convicted of some other offence, a compensation order may not be made4. In determining whether loss or damage resulted from an offence, the principles of causation are not to be adopted; but the court must ask itself whether the loss or damage can fairly be said to have resulted to anyone
