The stitch-up failed- or did it?

Not Guilty on all counts:

Trouble is, shit still sticks, so that's effectivly their careers over. I always thought this reeked of a stitch-up. All of these historical trials with zero physical evidence are just 'you say-I say'.

When you have a witness that supports the defense, that pushes it clearly out of the 'beyond resonable doubt' zone.

Of course, in court black can be white and up can be down, so it's all a toss of the coin much of the time.

This time the coin landed right way up. But damage is done, regardless- again- shit always sticks.

Somebody has set this whole thing up- I doubt Nicholas came forward of here own accord. Somebody else has shafted her for their own purposes, which may have been equally well served by just the trial- a conviction was not needed.

That's my theory, anyway.

I think the objective was achieved.
I believe there to be no way the principal target can return to his previous position.
If, howver, by some fortuitous circumstance, he does regain his seat, there will be two persons within the organisation, who will be suffering deep concern, and will be looking over their shoulders for the rest of their [no doubt truncated] service.......
