Hearing on abuse case

The High Court yesterday began hearing another pre-trial application seeking an order in relation to three of the former childcare workers at the Civic crèche who are charged with abusing children in their care.

Mr Gerald Nation, for Gaye Jocelyn Davidson, aged 39, Marie Keys, aged 43, and Janice Virginia Buckingham, aged 45, presented argument for the application, which the Crown opposes.

Further details relating to the proceeding before Mr Justice Williamson are suppressed. Rulings on two earlier applications have been suppressed also.
