The lawyer Marc Bellemare said that this would be a huge loss and a huge disappointment for the citizen” if the judge decided that the proceedings in the trial of Nathalie Normandeau exceed a reasonable amount of time.
Remember that the hearing of a second-type query to the Jordan, at the trial of Nathalie Normandeau and his five co-accused, begins today at the palace of justice of Quebec.
According to mr. Bellemare, it is possible, therefore, that “the court finds that the Crown has dragged its feet” and gives reason for Ms. Normandeau. If that was the case, the proceedings against Nathalie Normandeau, and perhaps also against his five co-accused, would be abandoned.
“If there is no trial, for the citizen, this is a huge defeat, a huge disappointment that will add to all the other disappointments in the business, UPAC has undertaken for the past ten years,” said the former minister of Justice, QUB radio.
