Verdict In Obstruction Of Justice Trial Will Not Be Made Immediately

The trial of a senior official in the provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture for obstruction of justice has ended with a verdict to be announced June 19th. 

Peter Andrews was charged in connection with the investigation of the brother of Deputy Premier Paul Robichaud on an aquaculture violation. 

He has denied there was any political interference. The Deputy Premier also denying accusations that he interfered. 

The defense argues the prosecution never did present any evidence showing there was political interference. The prosecution questions why this particular case was even discussed by officials at a senior level in the department.
