Yesterday, Mark Hanna began to present his case against the charges brought by the Prosecution. In answer to earlier evidence given by Robert Hernandez (a junior member of Hanna's security team) that Hanna 'confessed' to having dug a hole in his garden and burnt documents which would incriminate people working for NI, the images above were produced. They purport to show that Hanna would not need to dig a hole to burn material. Hanna denies having burnt anything from NI, whether incriminating or not.
