DAY 3 OCTOBER
John Cooper QC makes a commanding argument over POLICE DISCLOSURE OF EVIDENCE.
He says that his Client Issac Marrache will not be able to have a FAIR TRIAL (under Article 6 of ECHR ) and asks the Judge to re-analyse the Police Evidence.
He puts in an ABUSE OF PROCESS claim that I see he remarks is BASIC LAW.
A book on ABUSE OF PROCESS CLAIMS IS HERE.
The Jury is dismissed as Geoffrey Grigson hears the Evidence in camera but is the Jury returned after an Adjournment?
The Judge Geoffrey Grigson J ends up hearing Evidence without Defending and Prosecuting Counsel in Camera.
After a gap sufficient for Counsel to work on other Cases we are once again returned to Gibralter where all the action is.
Benjamin Marrache is particularly emotional and beligerent
DAY 66 LATEST is Benjamin Marrache has been throwing some has a Lawyer-Defendant now alleges that the Trial is just a money making machine for his First Rate impeccably behaved Legal Team.
Jury sitting? If normal then I imagine the Jury has been reinstated a key factor for Trials being conducted with DUE PROCESS under the RULE OF LAW.
I wonder if this is because of financial reasons and because he is feeling increasingly uncomfortable under CROSS EXAMINATION despite the fact he is a Lawyer ( Solicitor/Barrister mixed Gib Model? or Gib Model, Sol or Barrister elsewhere)
MORE TO COME
Issues raised in the Trial so far….
- Admissability of Police Evidence (from John Cooper QC who has taken a commanding position in the Trial)
- Constitutional Issues What type of Case is it? A Domestic Case or one destined for the European Court of Appeal?
- Lawyer-Defendant Issues now with the increasingly stroppy beligerent Benjamin Marrache.
- QC Representation Issues see Benjamin Marrache point above
Abuse of Process,
Police Disclosure a need for a complete re-analysis
Did JCQC commanding args get heeded?
