More delays to Sarah Groves murder case

There has been yet another delay today in the trial of the man accused of killing Guernseywoman, Sarah Groves

Once again a witness summoned to offer evidence has failed to attend and the case has been adjourned.

No evidence has been heard by the judge since September last year.

The body of 24-year-old Sarah was found on a houseboat in Kashmir in April 2013.

Dutchman Richard de Wit is on trial charged with her murder.

Man accused of killing Sarah Groves is medically fit to stand trial, says lawyer

The trial of the man, accused of murdering a Guernsey woman in India, has resumed today.

Dutch national, Richard De Wit, is charged with killing 24-year-old Sarah Groves on a houseboat in Srinigar in 2013.

The Dutch government has made an application for De Wit to be declared medically unfit to stand trial, but De Wit’s new lawyer met with the judge to dispute that earlier today.

He has argued that the accusation is ‘unfair’ and that his client deserves the right to prove his innocence in court.

The Dutch government will present their report tomorrow.
