We have to stop talking about 377A

Postby offshoreoildude » Wed, 23 Jan 2013 8:57 am

The AGC warned that while the appeal is on they will consider Contempt charges against people discussing 377A publicly.

Quote:

Meanwhile, the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) has urged against public discussion on this matter.

This is because the statements made by members of the public risk sub judice contempt.

AGC said in a statement released on Tuesday night there would be a real risk of prejudice if the statements are calculated to affect the minds of the courts hearing the case, parties concerned in the case, or if they amount to public pre-judgement of the case.

It added it takes a serious view of any statements which are sub judice and will, if necessary, act to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.

Yeah, saw that this morning. Therefore I believe it ends here for the time being.
