I would like to thank all those of you who have kindly written to me asking
for an update on the new appeal, and expressing your concern at the length
of time it is taking to be listed. Your continued support helps to keep me
We are still waiting for the Prosecution's formal response setting out the
basis upon which they intend to oppose the appeal. Only then can the Court
of Appeal try to find a date for the hearing. We remain hopeful that it
will be before Christmas, although time is now getting rather tight. As soon
as we find out, we will let you all know.
