Quote:The trial jury heard that Brooks had decided not to answer questions during his police interview on advice from his lawyers.
Saunders said solicitors frequently give this advice, but noted that they “do not know the truth”.
He went on to note: “Mr Brooks knew that he was entirely innocent.
“Mr Brooks knew that there was no risk to him or anyone else in answering all of the police questions entirely honestly because he had done nothing wrong and telling the truth might have had the result of clearing the matter up completely.” Unquote.
So, Brooks loses costs claims. Judge notes that he misled the prosecution and brought suspicion upon himself by refusing to answer police questions. Hmmmm...
