McClay in Court

The Herald reports:

Former Government minister Roger McClay appeared in court today to face charges of obtaining or using a document to obtain a pecuniary advantage.

The 56 charges relate to alleged offending involving $26,000 between November 2005 and December 2008. An additional charge was today withdrawn.

At Auckland District Court today, Defence lawyer Guyon Foley did not enter a formal plea but said that his client denied the allegations against him.

The former National Party politician was bailed to reappear in court on April 23.

It will be interesting to see the formal plea. I have no knowledge of the charges beyond what I read in the media. However based on those reports, the case seems to be one that is easily proven or disproven.
