Bashir Contempt Motion

In documents released on Friday, in relation to the Michael Jackson trial, Judge Rodney Melville denied a defence motion to issue a contempt citation against Martin Bashir.

Bashir was the journalist who produced "Living With Michael Jackson" in 2003, then followed it up this week up with two more TV specials; including a two hour programme called, "Michael Jackson's Secret World".

The defence tried to argue that Bashir was in violation of a court gag order prohibiting him, as a witness, from continuing to make public statements on the case.

Bashir argues that, as a journalist, he is exempt from the gag order.
