More Bad News For Byron Sonne As Prosecutors Try to Introduce New Evidence

The trial of accused anti-G20 plotter Byron Sonne threatens to lurch from merely drawn-out and confusing to a full-on Kafkaesque spectacle, with news that prosecutors now want to reopen the case (which had been nearing a long-awaited conclusion) in order to introduce new evidence. The evidence in question is apparently a stash of potassium chlorate, an ingredient in fireworks, that was discovered last week in the backyard of Sonne’s former home, during a dramatic police raid. Sonne’s home was found to be full of similar precursors to explosives during an initial police investigation following his arrest just prior to the 2010 G20 summit, but his defense has said that those materials were related to Sonne’s many innocuous hobbies, which include model rocketry.
