Summarising, on the opening day of Sgt Nightingale's court martial, the prosecution said it was for the board to determine fact and on that basis whether he was guilty or not guilty.
We suggest that the questions that the evidence in this case raises and the matter are straightforward.
Did the defendant put the gun and the ammunition in his bedroom or did somebody else put it there?
If the gun and ammunition belonged to somebody else, how did the defendant miss it?
Is the claim of memory loss in respect of the gun and ammunition the truth or a lie told to try and avoid the consequences of the truth?
Sgt Nightingale, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of possession of a prohibited firearm and 338 rounds of ammunition.
