Amdi requests lawyer

Copenhagen Post/September 15, 2002

Mogens Amdi Pedersen has requested the appointment of another defence lawyer in his forthcoming trial for tax evasion and embezzlement in connection with the Tvind run foundation.

The prosecution have asked to comment his request before the judge makes a decision, reveals deputy public prosecutor Poul Gade.

The announcement supposedly means that the prosecution will object to the Treasury funding another lawyer for Amdi, in addition to Anders Boelskifte.

The objection comes despite the High Court already appointing two lawyers to represent spokesman Poul Jørgensen, who is also charged in the Tvind case.
