Even as the number of cheating charges at stake has fallen
for the three directors of Profitable Plots,
a tussle over papers has emerged.
The trio asked the High Court yesterday
for access to certain documents -
or their copies -
that the police had seized
from their land-banking and investment firm in a 2010 raid.
The public prosecutor had objected to the defence's previous request
by citing a lack of legal basis,
and this request was also rejected by a lower court -
the Criminal Case Disclosure Conference court -
earlier this month.
