Procedures for requesting cases be thrown out are extremely rare.
We knew this and undertook this process with confidence with the facts in this case and evidence in the file regarding lies of the two complainants.
Unfortunately, the Court of Appeal refused to take the only decision which, although unusual, was necessary in the light of these facts.
As Ms. Marsigny states, this decision does not put into question the merits of the case: the complainants have lied on numerous occasions and there is no objective evidence to corroborate their versions: no witnesses, no medical certificate, no material evidence.
In fact the opposite is true.
We are patient and will remain determined and confident.
