Mauritius case to resume on Monday after legal discussions delay
The Michaela McAreavey murder trial in Mauritius will resume on Monday after proceedings were delayed by legal discussions yesterday.
Avinash Treebhoowoon, one of the hotel cleaners who is accused of murdering Ms McAreavey, was due to take the stand for a fourth day yesterday.
However, the day was taken up with legal discussions in the absence of the jury.
The prosecution claims Ms McAreavey was murdered by Mr Treebhoowoon (31) and his former colleague Sandip Moneea (42) when she returned to her hotel room.
After dealing with the legal issue, Judge Prithviraj Fecknah called the jury back yesterday to say the matter had been dealt with and proceedings would resume on Monday. The trial was originally scheduled for two weeks but is entering its seventh week.
