The man’s testimony was relayed by video via two video screens at the courthouse and through a microphone system.The witness was in turn able to see the surrounds of Letterkenny Circuit Court including questions being put to him by both defence and prosecution teams.Judge John O’Hagan was also able to put questions to the witness through his own personal camera.The successful link-up lasted more than an hour.An even more ambitious link-up is to be carried out on November 16th next when a witness in a case at Letterkenny District Court is to give her evidence from Australia.* – keeping you in touch with all that’s happening in the courts.Follow us on us on© 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.LEGAL HISTORY MADE AS FIRST VIDEO-LINK CARRIED OUT IN DONEGAL COURT was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:JUdge John O’HaganLetterkenny Circuit Courtvideo-linklast_img read more
