Apr 15/97: Defense rests in Ts'peten trial


- posted to sovernet-L on April 15, 1997 by Tim Wees

No witnesses were called and no new evidence presented today.

The defense has rested its case.

Judge Josephson said to the jury, "I never thought the day would arise. There is no further evidence to be heard in this trial."

There is still the "long and difficult process" when the defense and the crown present their final statements to the jury, and then there will be the closing statement from Judge Josephson in his final instructions to the jury. This final piece of work will begin sometime next week. The rest of this week will be devoted to preparation.
