After spending just over four hours considering its verdicts yesterday, the jury in the trial of the Island's Attorney General will today (Friday) resume its deliberations.
Fifty-two year-old Mr Harding of Glen Vine denies a charge of perjury and committing acts against public justice, relating to the winding up of former Island company Street Heritage in 2010.
This week jurors have heard closing statements from both the prosecution and defence.
And they retired yesterday with the words of the judge presiding over the trial, Deemster Peter Birkett, ringing in their ears.
He told them to take their time and engage in a 'cool and dispassionate' discussion as they consider evidence heard over the past eight days.
