Russell can no longer have a fair trial
Right now a fellow man has been accused of multiple rapes in the media. He is rich, he is famous, he is popular. Now his future and wellbeing is in question.
Russell Brand has claimed every single sexual encounter was consensual.
What we have now is an open media trial that allows every single person he as slept with to come forward to make a claim on his wealth.
To start with Russell is likely to face his shows to be taken offline, his income will go to zero or below. He will have to pay a lawyer millions, he will lose friends and possibly family.
Russell can no longer have a fair trial. In Ireland, the laws is no release of the accused name until a guilty verdict has been reached. When is New Zealand going to follow Ireland’s lead?
