I’ve read the latest accounts of the latest day of proceedings in the Jian Ghomeshi sexual assault case and I’ve seen enough. This trial is rapidly turning into a disgrace, based on the reports I’m seeing from the trial about the two accusers’ sharing of 5,000 emails. And the accusers’ stories are being demolished under cross-examination. I’m not a Ghomeshi supporter by any means but right now it sure looks like the Crown is going down in flames.
If you want the straight goods on today’s proceedings, read what Christie Blatchford reported in the National Post. Blatchford says this trial “threatens to bring the administration of justice into disrepute.” That sums it up.
