Or Is He A  Lying B**tard

Cheesy Judge Chisholm ‘Lifts’ Name Suppression in Vanessa Pickering Case. “The embargo on publication of Chaston’s photograph continues.”

Malcolm Chaston, 40, appeared in the Christchurch District Court on Thursday charged with assault with intent to commit sexual violation, and separate counts of abduction, assault and sexual violation of a child.” The Press reported.

Chaston who allegedly raped Vanessa Pickering’s seven-year-old girl, was arrested two days after Ms. Pickering disappeared from her New Brighton home.

Her body was found on Thursday afternoon on Godley Head, Christchurch.

“Chaston was granted interim name suppression, but in the Christchurch High Court this afternoon, Justice Chisholm lifted the order after legal argument from media organisations, including Fairfax and TVNZ.”

NOT so!  Chaston’s name and photo were published by various media on February 11, 2010.


Evidence Justice Chisholm is a b**tard
liar: (L) Malcolm Chaston. (R)Vanessa Pickering

“The right to the openness of justice is not compromised by the rights of a fair trial in this case,” the judge said.

[How a judge and the media conspired to score political points!]

“The judge suppressed his reasons for the decision. The embargo on publication of Chaston’s photograph continues.”

Bullshit, your honour. You had no choice in the matter because the cat was already out of the bag.
