Media Coverage quotes Christian Leblanc in an article on the right to a fair trial

“Trial of former Quebec deputy premier drags on” by Kevin Dougherty, quotes Montréal lawyer, Christian Leblanc, in an article on the rights to a fair trial.

“Freedom of Expression is just as important as the right to a free trial,” said lawyer Christian LeBlanc, representing Radio-Canada and La Presse.

LeBlanc noted that Larochelle’s case, in defence of Côté, is not the main issue of the trial, adding that the jurisprudence suggests that in a trial by judge alone such as this one, the right of an accused to a fair trial would not be threatened by media leaks.
