Now Is Not A Good Time To Be A "Prominent Businessman"
I had a post all ready to rock on this then bugger, discovered it was not just in front of the unflappable Venning J., it is a jury trial.
What a clusterfuck of the highest order.
Can't wait for the Netflix series and can't wait until the Jury are out when we can all mercilessly mock the proceedings for what they are worth. It will also be fascinating to see how the "prominent businessman" is treated, guilty or not guilty of the allegations here, in the community for which he is a major (read major) benefactor to some of the most woke people around.
On Thursday, the jury was also played part of a secretly recorded meeting at Auckland’s Family Bar between the witness, his female associate and the businessman's manager, where the failure of the attempt and further plans were discussed.
It surely cannot get much more amusing than clandestine recorded meetings in Family Bar with the expectation of privacy of dealings!
