BridgeMark update - BCSC and 'prima facie'

There have been howls of outrage as the group of dirty BridgeMark 'consultants' have been whittled down by the BCSC at it's first hearing. Layfolks best realize the limitations of BCSC power and the term 'prima facie'.

The definition is "based on the first impression; accepted as correct until proved otherwise." It is a slippery legal slope to make 'prima facie' determinations without trial. Basically one is assigning guilt without any recourse to those being accused. That is contrary to fundamental justice.
Public types can rest assured the massive publicity will guarantee more investigation moving forward, quite likely criminal and almost certainly from the civil forfeiture office. That same publicity has permanently sunk the 'BridgeMark Group' moving forward. NO public company idiots/crooks would dare sell their stakeholders down the BridgeMark river now.
