Thorne QC maintains SIPT Trial is political vendetta

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 15 Feb 2016 – Every intrusive and erratic remark and statement made by the Special Prosecutor for the Crown must be proved to be true; it was the overarching theme of the statement today from Ralph Thorne, the Queen’s Counsel representing former premier Michael Misick. Thorne was revved up in his presentation and called the opening statement by Andrew Mitchell, QC nothing more than a political vendetta aimed at ‘getting Mike’. He said, when proceedings resumed this morning at the Myrtle Rigby Health complex that, “An expedition in character assassination…” is what Mitchell led in his abnormal opening, which seemed to draw conclusions instead of the traditional method of promising, then proving allegations. Thorne promises to prove that the charges are politically motivated and he will aim to defend the character of his client. Thorne has a problem with the absence of any civilian witnesses, he has an issue with government witnesses who are coming in their official capacity and he rejects that the former Governor was bullied by Michael Misick during his tenure and Thorne takes exception to the fact that Developers in the debacle, are missing from the trial. Thorne said, the mountain of apparent evidence by the SIPT will turn into a mouse of proof, and that it will not be enough to satisfy the court.

Some guys don’t win any trophies for 18 years. I didn’t win any trophy for 18 months.”“Now I have time for thinking, reflection, trying to understand everything and trying to be more ready for the next one that is coming. I know it is coming.

I don’t want to work in a structure of no coincidence [unity] in the thinking.”“People sometimes say ‘this manager doesn’t like to work with a football director’; ‘this manager doesn’t like to work with chief scout’; ‘this manager doesn’t like to work with an owner’; ‘this manager doesn’t like to work with the president’,” he commented.“During my career, I have been working in every possible circumstance. The most successful situations are not because of the structure but because of the empathy in the structure.”“People who work well together. People who share the same kind of ideas. This is the fundamental thing,” he added.“You now have a generation of players who are not just players but the whole package. You have the player, the family, the agent, the entourage, the director of communication. You sometimes have the individual’s medical people and in an extreme situation you even have what they call their ‘personal fitness guys’.”“When you have a player you have all these distractions. And if there is no empathy in the structure of the club you get into so many contradictions that it is really, really difficult to work.”last_img read more
