Gary Neville pointed to possible contempt of court over a social media post

Gary Neville has been referred to the attorney general for possible contempt of court over a social media post at 4 a.m. on the morning of the opening day of Ryan Giggs’ trial.

Giggs’ business partner position was brought to the judge’s attention on the morning of the third day of the trial, and proceedings are due to begin just six hours later.

Judge Hilary Manley has now referred the case to the attorney general. It came on the heels of the jury being out of office on Wednesday, having failed to reach a verdict on the 17th day of the trial.

A source close to Mr Neville told The Telegraph that he denied the claim.

They said the post was a reaction to Manchester United’s owners – the Glazers – and a demonstration by fans protesting the way the football club is being run.

By the time the post was reported to the judge, thousands of people had already liked it, including TV presenter Melanie Sykes, who also reacted with a heart-shaped emoji.

Another press brought to the attention of lawyers

A member of the press drew the attention of the lawyers in the case to her, who, in turn, sent the photo to Judge Manley.

“After I reviewed the law and the possibility of contempt, I brought this matter and this particular position to the head of the department,” she said.

The judge said she was unaware that any member of the jury had seen the post, and was therefore happy for the trial to continue.

But the post was sent before she told the jury not to see anything online related to the case.

On the morning of the third day, Mr. Giggs’ ex-girlfriend Kate Greville was at the witness stand, and Peter Wright QC said of The Crown: “It is not known if she ever saw it, but in the context of the evidence already presented in this case, this A matter to which we may seek to return in due course.”

“Your honor, in terms of any potential repercussions – we make clear that Mr. Giggs was not aware of this,” Chris Dow QC, for the defence, said.

A secondary concern, he said, is that due to the nature of social media, a juror might stumble across the post without looking for it because it would appear in his feed if he followed Mr Neville.
