CONTROVERSIAL online blogger Nick Fletcher has claimed in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court he has self-referred a case against him to the High Court as the long-running trial recommenced yesterday.
Nicholas Francis Fletcher, 51, appeared unrepresented and immediately stated the publication complaints matter was now before the High Court and refused to participate in the trial any further.
“I have had to lodge with the High Court,” Fletcher said.
“I have been done over by a corrupt police force.”
Magistrate Ian White requested the defendant’s action number for the higher court matter and when nothing was provided, he indicated the trial would be resuming.
