“So, what happened about your trial, guys?”
We keep being asked this question but – frustratingly – the answer is still ‘watch this space’. As the court hearing adjourned at the very beginning of June and the judges mentioned that they wouldn’t have time to consider a verdict until the end of June – we’re assuming that we will get the results some time in July.
The case had hundreds of pages of evidence (at least 3 moving-house-sized boxes’ worth) and obviously the judges will want to weigh up all the evidence and all legal precedents very carefully.
We hope and assume we will have the results before the Olympics begin, and that if there are any learnings or recommendations from the judgement that they will be applied to the policing of the Olympics, but… we’ll just have to wait and see.
Stay tuned – you’ll be the first to know.
