    “What could happen is that the court could find it impossible to have a jury empanelled who was not affected by the comments,” she said.

    “And that could mean that the men could not receive a fair trial, because the jury had already made up their minds, or that their trials might be stayed, and that has happened in the past where comments made in Parliament have been the basis of a stay application later.”
