Jurrah, Carey in Supreme Court in Alice Springs

By ERWIN CHLANDA

 

Two high profile cases are going to trial in the Supreme Court in Alice Springs.
Football star Liam Jurrah (pictured) will answer the charge of unlawfully causing serious harm to Basil Jurrah, who is currently serving a prison term on unrelated charges.
Liam Jurrah will appear before Chief Justice Trevor Riley, in a trial starting on Monday.
And the trial of the builder in the collapsed Frampton New Homes scheme, Randall Carey, will start on May 13, and is set down for eight days.
In the Jurrah trial 19 witnesses are scheduled to give evidence. Mr Jurrah will be represented by Jon Tippet QC.
Justice Riley said during a hearing on Wednesday the Mr Jurrah will need to attend the trial and was told that the accused will be arriving in Alice Springs today.
Justice Riley directed that there be interpreters on hand to explain to people in the gallery, if necessary, how to conduct themselves so as to avoid “intimidatory behaviour”.
Mr Carey was arraigned by Justice Riley on the same day. The charges include making documents purporting to be another person, attempting to procure an unauthorised status and obtain benefit by deception.
Mr Carey told Justice Riley that he would be represented by barrister Peter Maley but Justice Riley said Mr Maley was not on record as the counsel. If he was not available Mr Carey would need to be in a position of defending himself, the judge said.
