Alleged bomber’s team says evidence needed


LAWYERS acting for a woman accused of preparing to blow up a north Queensland naval base are hoping to remove some of the 17 witnesses s involved in the case.

Kalisa Winn, 32, has been held in custody since February when she was ar- rested over an al- leged plan to blow up HMAS Cairns naval base (pictured) using petrol.

The matter has been listed for trial later in the month but the Cairns Magistrate­s Court y yesterdayd­a was told the defence d did not have a full brief o of evidence.

“I don’t know what th the witnesses are going to say at this point,” defenced lawyer Paul GrayG said.

“I’m trying to see if we can disposedi of some of the witnesses … and keep it down to a one-day trial.”

The matter will return to court on September 10.
