42 days until the trial of Basi, Young & Duncan

Dave Basi is also facing four new charges, alleging three counts of fraud on the government and one count of breach of trust relating to allegations he received $50,000 from two Victoria area developers to get property out of an Agricultural Land Reserve.

Victoria developers Tony Young and Jim Duncan also have both been charged with three counts of fraud on the government and one count of breach of trust.

The charges are related to a 650-home subdivision by Young and Duncan's company – Swiftsure Developments – in Sooke, just outside Victoria.

Basi is expected to appear in Provincial Court on 29 June 2006 ... unless there is a further postponement.

Given the relatively brief period of time since these new charges were laid, postponement seems likely.

There is speculation that this trial will be postponed until after the major trial of Basi, Virk, and Basi.

We should know, soon, if that's the plan.
