I wish to obtain verbatim transcripts of the summing up of Mr. Justice
Moses in the Soham murder trial held in autumn, 2003.  The summing up
took place around Dec. 11, 12, 2003.  The trial at the Old Bailey of
Ian Huntley & Maxine Carr concerns the murders of Holly Wells and
Jessica Chapman and received international attention at time.

Hello dakhurst-ga:

You can read the transcripts of each day of the trial at Bernard
O?Mahoney?s Future Books? site for ?Flowers in God?s Garden? (The
title of the upcoming book about the Huntley murder case):
Start at the bottom link and work your way up to the December 17, 2003
link which contains the reading of the verdict.

There are links for December 10th ?12th. The transcripts from the 10th
and 11th are the attorneys? closing arguments.

The transcript from December 12th is a summation/instructions to the
jury by Justice Moses:

It looks like he might have started the summation on December 11th
(there he says he?s about to start his summation), so be sure to check
that link, too:

I?m 99.0% certain this is the summation you want. As an American, it
may be that I?ve been thrown off-course by differences in American and
English legal procedure or terminology.

But you may want Justice Moses?s summation, given December 17, 2003,
*following the reading* of the verdict:

If this isn?t the correct information, please let me know and I?ll
give it another try!

This site may be useful to you, too: At the BBC?s site on the ?Sotham
Trial,? you can  review in-depth articles about this case:
At the bottom of that page you can read daily summaries of the trial.

Request for Answer Clarification by dakhurst-ga on 07 Nov 2004 19:05 PST
This is not a request for clarification, but to say thank you for your
answer, as the information you provided was precisely what I was
looking for.  The judge eventually accepted a majority verdict rather
than a unanamous verdict from the jury, which was a monumental step in
the deliverance of justice in a case that demanded a nothing less than
a clear verdict.

Thanks again,
E. David Akhurst
