Judge throws dead man out of court

Charles Cowling


Two South Korean fisherfolk,  Soon Ill Hwang and Dae Jun Lee, were accused in New Zealand of illegally dumping dead fish at sea. 

What happened next?

Soon Ill Hwang was killed in a car crash.

And then?

A solicitor representing the fisheries ministry insisted to m’learned lud that the show must go on — Soon must be brought to book.

And in the end?

Judge Gary MacAskill hurled the case out with great force. “It reminds me of Monty Python and his dead parrot,” he said.
