Attorney General Stephen Harding is facing a retrial.

Mr Harding denied charges of perjury and committing acts against public justice in a trial which began on November 25.

However, after hearing the evidence, a jury failed to reach a verdict in the case last week and were discharged.

A statement issued this afternoon (Monday) by Laurence Keenan Advocates, who were the advocates for the prosecution, reads: ‘The prosecution confirms that it has made an application to the Court of General Gaol Delivery for a hearing to be had and directions given in connection with setting of the date for the commencement of the retrial of Mr S. M. Harding.

‘It is expected that a date for such hearing will be notified in the near future.’
