There is still no firm news about Olly Cromwell’s appeal hearing. The Defence
Barrister asked the Judge what was to be done in the event that the Crown
Prosecution Service couldn’t find their lost evidence file and
the Judge very
sensibly decreed that to stop another unnecessary hearing and waste of
everyone’s time and money, that the they must find it by 5 p.m. last Friday. Five
days later no one knows what the CPS is up to. They have not notified Olly’s
Defence Team, either his solicitor or his barrister, nor have they responded to
any letter or enquiry. CPS incompetence knows no bounds. My guess is that even if
they have found the file there will be extreme difficulty in persuading any
witness who has not told the absolute truth to turn up.
Meanwhile everyone else has been advised to be in Court at 10 a.m. on the 17th August while Madam Bauer, Bexley’s most dishonourable councillor goes sick, or whatever excuse she has for non-appearance this time around.
Note 17th August 2012. At an appeal hearing where both Seymour and Bauer were called as witnesses and cross examined it became clear that it was Seymour who had dishonestly exaggerated the content of the Tweet in order to attempt a miscarriage of justice and Bauer had merely sent him a copy and took no part in its embellishment.
