Harte keeps busy on the sideline as Michaela prosecution set to wrap up
TYRONE manager Mickey Harte was busy on the sidelines yesterday -- far from the ongoing murder trial in Mauritius over the tragic death of his daughter Michaela.
Mr Harte was busy instructing his players as Tyrone beat Armagh in the Ulster football championship yesterday.
His son-in-law John McAreavey has been keeping watch in the Mauritian Supreme Court, where former hotel workers Avinash Treebhoowoon and Sandip Moneea deny murdering his late wife Michaela McAreavey during their honeymoon on the holiday island.
The prosecution team is likely to wrap up its case in the next few days.
Prosecutor Mehdi Manrakhan is expected to call Dr Sunil Kumar Gungadin, who carried out the post-mortem after her body was found in a hotel room at the Legends Hotel.
Several senior police officers are also expected to take the stand including former Superintendent Yusef Sootun who was in charge of the major crime investigation team (MCIT) at the time of Michaela's death. The MCIT has been accused of brutality against Mr Treebhoowoon.
The defence team will have an opportunity to outline their case after the prosecution wraps up. The defence lawyer is expected to call as many as 20 witnesses.
