Security has called for a new version of the proceedings following the conviction of former white police officer Derek Suev, 45, for the murder of African American George Floyd († 46).
As justification, attorney Eric Nelson cited the court and the attorney’s legal errors and misconduct. Nelson wrote in a resolution dated Tuesday that the lawsuit against Suez was unfair because of the sum of the errors and thus deprived him of his constitutionally guaranteed rights.
The defense failed several times during the trial with the judge in charge, Peter Cahill, with demands for an immediate end to the proceedings due to legal errors.
In the justification of the recent request, Suu Kyi’s attorney, among others, cited the judge’s refusal to relocate the process. In addition, Cahill failed to order a complete isolation of the arbitral tribunal from the outside world for the entire duration of the process. Nelson accused the attorney of having procedural errors.
In late April, the arbitral tribunal found Suu Kyi guilty of second-degree murder. They are serving up to 40 years in prison in the US state of Minnesota. So far, the sentence is scheduled for June 16 in a Minneapolis court.
