Andrei Justice delayed

The lawyer of a former national figure facing indecent assault charges has told a court the charges had ''destroyed his client''.

Defence lawyer Jonathan Eaton said in his opening statement to a Nelson jury today, the sexual assault charges had come out of the blue for his client.

Th defendant in this case first appeared in court in January 2010.

As the link shows he is an ex MP. He has of course name suppression as does another ex MP currently before the court for Pokie machine fraud.

The name suppression thing we have done before - but my question is why has it taken over fourteen months from the former national figure's first appearance in court for the case to come to trial?

It's all very murky and not really a case of "Justice being seen to be done".
