More work to be done on Linc pros­e­cu­tion

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE pros­e­cu­tion in the case against five for­mer ex­ec­u­tives of Linc En­ergy has promised to pro­vide more doc­u­ments to the de­fen­dants by the end of the month.

The mat­ter was heard in the Dalby Mag­is­trates Court on Tues­day.

All five de­fen­dants, who face charges of fail­ing to en­sure Linc En­ergy com­plied with the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Act had le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tion via tele­phone.

Pros­e­cu­tor Ralph Devlin QC out­lined sev­eral doc­u­ments that were out­stand­ing, and that were an­tic­i­pated to be handed to the de­fen­dants by July 31.

It is an un­sat­is­fac­tory sit­u­a­tion but it is also a very un­usual sit­u­a­tion.
