(CNS): As government faces the music over the country’s dire financial situation, yet another costly chapter in the Operation Tempura investigation opened in Grand Court five this morning. Former Sister Islands MLA and Cayman Net News reporter, Lyndon Martin, faced charges for falsely accusing a police officer and perverting the course of justice.  Seven women were selected for the jury and twelve witnesses were listed to appear. The Crown’s opening statement will be made this afternoon at two o’clock by Andrew Radcliffe. Martin is represented by Trevor Burke QC and Ben Tonne. Justice Anderson is presiding.
