More Delays In MNS Election Forgery Case

There has been another delay in the court case of a former Metis politician accused of helping to fix the 2004 Metis Nation of Saskatchewan election.


Former MNS provincial secretary Ralph Kennedy is facing a charge of forgery and was scheduled to enter a plea today.


But his lawyer told a judge in North Battleford this morning that he still hasn’t had enough time to review all the evidence that the Crown has accumulated in this case.


The court was told earlier this year that there are more than 2,600 pages of evidence to go through, and Kennedy’s lawyer says he’s heard there might be more to come.


The case has been adjourned until May 18th.


It has already been delayed numerous times at the request of defence counsel.


Kennedy is one of nine people facing charges in connection to the disputed 2004 MNS election.
