Exclusive: Huhne Trial Reporting Restrictions Will Be Lifted

Guido’s counsel has just got back to us following our application to lift reporting restrictions in the Chris Huhne case – currently we are unable to report anything other than the bare bones of the case – the “not guilty” plea from Huhne and that the trial proper starts Monday.

We argued that we should be free to report the proceedings and tweet from the trial starting Monday. The CPS told the Court they had no problem with reporting restrictions being lifted.  The position now is that unless the defendants object on Monday, reporting restrictions will be lifted. If they do object, we will fight them…

Many thanks to Donal Blaney at Griffin Law and Matt Richardson (with junior counsel Kabir Sondhi) at Henderson Chambers for successfully representing Guido, again…
