Former MN-S President In Court

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 at 15:28



There has been another delay in the proceedings against a former Metis Nation – Saskatchewan president.


Dwayne Roth is facing charges that include conspiracy to commit forgery related to the controversial 2004 MN-S election.


Charged along with him are Brian Amyotte and Lyle Lee.


Today was supposed to be the first day of a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to go to trial.


However, Roth’s lawyer has since been appointed a provincial court judge — so he now has new legal representation.


The matter has been adjourned until next week, while lawyers try to re-schedule the hearing.


At this point, it appears the next opening is March 2010 — but all sides say they want the matter to move ahead much sooner.


Roth was in court today, but declined comment.
