UPDATE on Erwin Vermeulen ‘s trial: Feb 16th, Closing arguments; the defense was amazing in continuing to prove there is no case and no basis for this arrest and incarceration. At the end of the closing arguments, the Judge realized the defense position and ordered Erwin released. The prosecutor appealed this ruling to a higher court in order to keep Erwin in jail. This latest move by the prosecutor is unethical and unjust that proves this is a political case and nothing more. The Judge was not happy about the prosecutions appeal and has sent the papers to the higher court asking them to rule on this as early as tomorrow and release Erwin.
