CUBAN LIGHT BULB TRIAL: Case fails to get underway again, judge not pleased

Livern Barrett, Gleaner Writer
Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey this morning got testy with prosecutors and defence attorneys as the corruption trial of former junior minister, Kern Spencer, again failed to get underway.
The nearly 5-year-old case was adjourned in September and since then has failed to restart on four occasions.
Today's adjournment came after Spencer's attorney Deborah Martin again indicated to the court that she was still involved in a case before the Supreme Court.
However, the seemingly annoyed magistrate warned that she intend to restart the trial on Monday and asked that Martin use her best efforts to be in court then.
Pusey says she will be insisting that both sides get on with the trial.
Spencer and his former personal assistant Colleen Wright are on trial for money laundering and illicit enrichment arising from the implementation of the Cuban light bulb programme.
