Trial Hears How Charge Was Laid Against Deputy Premier's Brother

The high profile trial of a senior official in the provincial Aquaculture and Fisheries Department heard more testimony from former Fisheries Officer Gaetan Germain. 

Paul Andrews is charged with obstruction of justice.

Germain told the court a senior prosecutor in Bathurst reviewed the file and told him to go ahead and lay the charge under the Aquaculture Act against the brother of Deputy Premier Paul Robichaud. This followed an email Germain got from his supervisor instructing him not to go ahead with the charge after a meeting between the Deputy Premier and Fisheries Minister Micheal Olscamp.
