Prosecution's objection

Shalveen Chand
Saturday, February 15, 2014

THE State prosecution has objected to an application by a lawyer representing the family of the victims to sit and observe the case at the Bar table.

The case is that of Jessica Hill who is charged with causing death by dangerous driving last year.

Ms Hill is alleged to have caused the death of a woman who was driving another vehicle.

Barbara Malimali told the court she was representing the victims. She said apart from the deceased, there were four children below the age of 16 in the vehicle.

Ms Malimali asked if she could also be given a copy of the disclosures.

Prosecutor Madonna Fong said the prosecution objected to this and didn't want interference in their trial.

Ms Malimali said under the Constitution, section 42(a) provided for the protection of children.

She said her application was made in the interest of justice not for the comfort or discomfort of the prosecution.
