Justice Mortimer “knocked back” only one of Peter Spencer’s nominated witnesses, in response to submissions from the Commonwealth and NSW Crown Solicitor to “knock out” all of them. This does not substantially affect Peter’s case – good news.
Since then, Peter has been in the witness box. At the end of the second session, Peter was still being cross examined by the CGS (for the Commonwealth) and NSW Crown Solicitor. Consequently, we are not allowed to report on any of this until after he completes his evidence – scheduled to be lunchtime tomorrow.
