Advocate refused to challenge firm's liquidation, court told

The advocate tasked with saving an Island business from collapse twice refused offers to challenge its liquidation, a court has heard.

Jerry Carter missed a court hearing which endorsed the winding up of Street Heritage in 2010.

But a jury has today been told that when he arrived in court ten minutes after the winding-up had been instigated, he twice turned down requests for the case to be reheard.

Mr Carter was subsequently sacked by the owners of Street Heritage.

Attorney General Stephen harding denies a charge of perjury and committing acts against public justice, relating to the company's collapse.

The trial continues.
