In a move which surprised nobody, Sabine McNeill entered a plea of ‘not guilty’ to charges of witness intimidation and attempting to pervert the course of justice this afternoon at Blackfriars Court.
However, she and her queue of supporters gathered outside Room 3, unaware that the hearing’s location had changed. This led the judge to issue a bench warrant for her arrest, on grounds of failing to appear. Sabine was eventually located and directed to the correct room—an amusing turnabout for the would-be McKenzie friend, who claims to be able to guide her clients through the court system!
Sabine’s trial date has been set for 7 March, and her bail conditions include not contacting Neelu Berry or any of the other witnesses.
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled, as we’re sure she’ll treat this bail condition with the same careful respect that she has treated all the others.
