Family of gas death children face wait for justice
The family of two children gassed to death in a holiday tragedy almost three years ago hit out today after a trial linked to the case was delayed for six months.
Twelve defendants, including two British holiday reps, were due to go on trial this morning in connection with the deaths of Christianne Shepherd, seven, and her brother Robert, six, who suffered carbon monoxide poisoning in a Greek holiday apartment in October 2006.
But the case at Corfu Town Courthouse was postponed at the request of four of the defendants.
Paul Wood, the children's stepfather, read a statement saying: "We are all very disappointed that we will have to wait a further six months to see justice done."
