Hick Time

Posted by Unknown |

"Hicks appeared in court wearing an olive green outfit, and thongs on his feet. The judge warned his defence counsel that in future he should not appear in prison-type clothes, in order to make sure that his presumption of innocence was maintained." - SMH

One thinks that perhaps 5 years of being held without trial in an illegal offshore prison by a foreign government after being arrested in a different foreign country and being tried at a late night pretend trial would do more to destroy the "presumption of innocence" but that might just be me.
