I am looking beyond why a witness wasn’t the subject of a subpoena in this instance and am questioning the actions of the visiting Judge – just who does he think he is? http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/06/18/2278222.htm
Is visiting Sydney Judge Justice Roger Gyles accountable to the people of Canberra or even the victim? If Justice Gyles comes down to the ACT to help out, I homestly don’t mind as I’m guessing he would be more likely to impose a term of imprisonment than our lot. Ok, he slams the DPP for the situation but to refuse to postpone the trial is another matter . Surely the victim has the right to have the matter put before the Court and the accused the right to test the evidence.
