first_imgCHIEF JUSTICE SUSAN Denham has said extra sittings are being arranged in the Court of Criminal Appeal so that final decisions can be made on cases previously heard by a High Court judge who is seriously ill.Denham said today that Justice Michael Hanna “will probably require a lengthy period of convalescence following on his illness” and there are a number of cases in the Court of Criminal Appeal where his judgement has been reserved and no final decision was determined.These will now be re-heard by the courts, as soon as possible and the Chief Justice said there will be extra sittings to “meet this situation”.“As all the preparatory papers in these appeals are ready and available to the court, it is anticipated that the appeals will be dealt with promptly,” she said today.Read: Firefighter group brings council to court over failed breathing apparatus sets>Read: Senior gardaí “looking closely” at drink-drive ‘loophole’ verdict>last_img
