Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

well there's lots of Lawyers out there saying "How have their lawyers let them do that" it's really reccomended not to issue statements like that, it may sound good, but a good prosecution lawyer may use them against you, or  others.  

The main reason I haven't included peoples statements is legal. the Guardian started by throwing them all up online, then had a quick panic and took at least one down, as its lawyers realised that one of the statements appeared to accuse one or two of the other accused of involvement. Now this may be ok for the individual, but for a publisher to put this out risks predjudicing the upcoming trial, and nobody wishes to be the one who the finger is pointed at to justify its abandonment


Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
