Lawyers representing Christopher Panayiotou now want the presiding judge to recuse himself, based on their belief that the murder accused has not been granted a fair trial.

This comes after Judge Dayalin Chetty found a secret video recording in which Panayiotou allegedly implicated himself in his wife’s murder, to be admissible.

Advocate Terry Price SC was upset that Judge Chetty did not give reasons for his ruling.

The trial has accordingly been postponed to Wednesday.
