Corkill hearing

by Isle of Man Listing Owner 3rd March 2006
A hearing relating to the forthcoming trial of a building contractor and the wife of former Chief Minister Richard Corkill, will be held at Douglas courthouse this afternoon (Friday).

Advocate for Julie Corkill, Dawn Jones, wants the Department of Tourism and Leisure to hand over further documents as she prepares her client's defence for the trial, which is due to start on April the seventh.

At a hearing earlier this week, the chief executive of the department, Carol Glover, appeared before the Deputy High Bailiff, Alistair Montgomery, after a witness summons was issued by the court.

She handed over two files of documents and said more would be made available.

Mrs Corkill denies two charges of deception and two more of false accounting. Builder William Kelly, a partner in G C Construction, which carried out work at the Corkill's home, denies deception.

The charges against Mrs Corkill relate to the payment of government grants, towards the cost of tourism accommodation work at the Corkill's home, at Little Mill, Onchan (pictured).
