“…this is… the Royal Courts of Justice?
Saunders, who appeared last week as a witness in the high-profile court battle involving the billionaire Candy brothers, was found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm by a jury in January.
However, Recorder Steven Gasztowicz QC blocked press reports of the case because Ghadami himself was due to stand trial over the incident, accused of a racial aggravated public order offence.
He was accused of using the anti-Semitic slur against Saunders, but the CPS dropped the case last Friday offering no evidence, meaning the extraordinary incident can be reported for the first time today.
Blimey! Who knew the dusty hals of justice were so exciting?
