APPEAL BAIL REFUSED FOR KLEENMAID DIRECTOR DESPITE COVID-19 RISKS

Former Kleenmaid director Andrew Eric Young was convicted after a trial of two counts of fraud with circumstances of aggravation and 17 counts of insolvent trading. Prior to trial the Mental Health Court held he was fit for trial and the proceedings should continue according to law, and the trial judge refused to put that issue to the jury.
He was sentenced to 9 years imprisonment with the overall sentence on all counts structured so as to require him to serve 5 years in actual custody before being released on recognisance.
He appealed his convictions on various grounds, including that the trial judge Judge Brian Devereaux erred by determining the matter of his fitness for trial himself and not referring it to the jury once it appeared to him that he was of unsound mind and in particular, that he was not fit to continue the trial.
