Jonny Jacobsen: Reflecting on the first week of Scientology's criminal trial in Belgium - 2015-11-01
We asked our man in Paris, Jonny Jacobsen, to give us some thoughts from his notebook about his first week covering Scientology's criminal trial in Brussels. (That's him with your proprietor this July.) Here's his attempt to catch us up on what's been happening...
Just recovering from the first week's coverage of the trial and trying to gather my thoughts before diving into the next piece.
The first thing to point out, if it's not already obvious, is that I've opted to go for depth rather than speed in my coverage, which means I've only just completed my write-up of the first day's hearing. When there is breaking news that I think can't wait, such as the reports from the defense lawyers filed here earlier, I'll fire off a few paragraphs to Tony in the hope that he can move it out. But inside court, I'm going to stick to my notebook to try to get as much down as possible.
