An out of date update on the Crown vs Huhne & Pryce case from the Eastleigh News.
Eastleigh residents will be heaving a sigh of relief with the news that Chris Huhne, Eastleigh’s popular MP, will still be available to switch on the Town’s Christmas lights next month after a judge postponed his trial on charges of perverting the course of justice which were due to start this week.
Huhne along with his former wife Vicky Pryce are accused of dodging speeding penalty points – charges he has strongly denied.
He resigned his cabinet post as Energy Secretary in February in order to defend himself and on Monday it is understood his lawyers attempted to get the case dismissed.
After a week of legal arguments it has been decided by Justice Sweeny to postpone the trial to January 14 for legal reasons, but Eastleigh News cannot report on the nature of these legal reasons due to legal reasons. 🙂
The Talkshop wishes the residents of Eastleigh a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New By-Election.
