(379) RAJ JANDOO CASE
The trial of temporary sheriff Raj Jandoo for alleged offences committed on board an aircraft on its way to Stornoway, where he was due to hold court (see No 332), was adjourned on 15 June 2004 as a result of Jandoo’s illness. New dates of 30 September and 1 October were fixed for the trial. A further charge of failing to follow the aircraft commander’s instructions to switch off his mobile phone and laptop computer was laid against Jandoo on 10 August. Donald Findlay QC is expected to represent Jandoo at his trial.
