After an epic 9 week trial for perjury at Southwark Crown Court, New Zealand Cricketer Chris Cairns has sensationally walked free after the jury delivered a not guilty verdict. The trial saw a who’s who of Australian and New Zealand cricket stars with even current Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum giving evidence against Cairns with claims of alleged match fixing.business-jour.ru
The New Zealand media have been lapping up the coverage. Online leads every day and front pages several times. The last 2 months have been pretty amazing for NZ, The Cairns trial, winning the Rugby World Cup and the very sad death of legend Jonah Lomu. The trial saw many NZ media outlets sending staff from down under with the Herald sending investigations journalist Jared Savage. After such a long trial it was a little sad to wave goodbye to my kiwi colleagues though they were more than happy to be getting back to their families in time for Christmas.
