No Criminal Prosecution for Robert Ghiz
Chief Judge Nancy Orr will not be issuing “process” to proceed with a criminal trial against former Premier Robert Ghiz. This morning’s hearing, based on allegations that Ghiz committed a crime when he destroyed the documents of his Chief-of-staff (Chris LeClair) and Clerk of the Executive Council (Rory Beck), lasted about an hour. I’ve uploaded the brief I presented to Judge Orr, with embedded links to all the referenced documents. Read it, and let me know your thoughts. Do you think it provides evidence of a crime? As you read, remember: these were public records that Robert Ghiz had a legal “duty” to preserve. What was in them? I guess we’ll never know.
