Nothing in the public domain at the Weave Shed until Thursday 26 April 2007. Whether witnesses have backed out at the 11th hour or what exactly has happened I don’t know, but, according to lead commission counsel Peter Engelmann hearings Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week have been cancelled because of “some witness availability and scheduling difficulties.” Hearings therefore resume at 09:30, Thursday 26 April 2007.
I don’t know what happened at the Weave Shed, but it’s been a busy, rewarding and invigorating couple of days for me. A very encouraging visit with the doctor for my husband – all is proceeding as it should and he is definitely well on the mend. Then overnight guests and stimulating conversation with good friends – I didn’t get near the webcam! In fact I just now took a quick look at yesterday’s transcript to find out why the cancellations next week. I’ll take a closer at everyting tomorrow.
Funny thing is that in as much as much as I missed two days of hearings I didn’t feel like I was missing too much – it was simply the cumination of the Let’s Pretend David Silmser is on the Stand business. That means that if there’s discontent with the outcome of that little legal exercise “they” may well decide to redo the process with a yet more unique approach, or the friendly legal throng may simply move to expunge Dave from the record completely! Between that and the play acting I find it hard to take the whole thing seriously. But, I’ll still take a boo at the transcripts for both days and see if there was anything out of the ordinary and worthy of note in this novel legal attempt to cross examine a witness in absentia for the sole purpose of absolving this institution that institution and the other (and those in their employ) by discrediting the witness.
I’ll close with a reminder to pass on word about the Steve Parisien Legal Defence Fund.
And that’s enough for now,
