The Haneef fiasco: Case adjourned

In my opinion, at 3pm CDPP Damian Bugg will withdraw the charge and that will be the end of this fundamentally flawed prosecution, writes Peter Faris QC.

This morning, in the Brisbane Magistrates’ Court, Haneef’s case was adjourned to 3pm today pending the CDPP Damian Bugg’s decision on what he euphemistically calls a “review of the file”.

Too little, too late. Bugg should have been handling (or at least closely supervising) this important matter from the beginning.
