Providenciales, 18 Jan 2016 – Court proceedings resume tomorrow in the high profile cases of former government ministers and some members of their families, yet there will be no trial as we know a trial as yet.
Queen’s Counsel for the SIPT, Andrew Mitchell at the adjournment at Christmas time explained that there is still more house-keeping to be done.
“So the judge will work through that process and it will take us a couple of weeks to go through those formal issues. And then when we’ve done that we will take stock of what we need to do by the way of proving some of the formal matters, we may in other words, where they may be a dispute, we may have to bring a witness in to prove a bank account or something like that…”
Mitchell also said the first witness will likely not be heard until Easter or just before; that person is identified as the principal witness and is former Governor, Richard Tauwhare
