Deputy Public Prosecutor Andre Jumabhoy also accused Tey of mocking the legal process and running rings around the system. According to lead prosecutor Andre Jumabhoy, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau threatened and badgered Tey into signing the six confession statements.
According to Jumabhoy, accepting the six cautioned statements at this point would overcome the purpose of a trial within a trial, which is in progress to establish that the statements he gave to CPIB were deliberate and can be accepted by the court as valid evidence. He said the statements would prejudice the court’s mind.
“One could be forgiven to think that these incidents never took place,” said Mr Jumabhoy in the Subordinate Courts.
