I wish this court case would get a move on.
According to OmroepBrabant (who are milking this story for all its worth) the keylogger information is being questioned yet again.
Peculiarly, it looks as if activity recorded on Coban’s computer by the police has remained confidential to them, so Coban’s lawyer has asked about how any defence can be built against unknown evidence.
Clutching at straws a bit, the lawyer is still trying to claim that keylogger information is illegal, but that won’t stand, I think.
I thought that a keylogger recorded every keystroke, but maybe I’m wrong, as it says that screenshots were captured after mouse clicks, which might make sense.
Whatever happens, this all makes Coban’s trial look somewhat different. The keylogger was placed on Coban’s computer in late 2013. (Oddly, they had to place another one later on as the first one failed, possibly due to detection by a security feature). Therefore, it looks like any credible evidence must be after late 2013. Also, I’m guessing that if the keylogger found nothing they would not have proceeded, so there must be something to condemn him.
They’ve dropped international charges, and they’ve dropped kiddy porn charges, so we’re back to Coban being a bog standard blackmailer, rather than a groomer.
I have to apologise to some readers. To be honest, I lost real interest in all this months ago so I haven’t paid attention to what was going on. I was hoping that the Coban trial would be done and dusted by now.
I’m hoping that Julia will get in touch so I can clarify some points. She’s the only person who can be genuinely traced through the system. I’ve done a bit of research and she’s not overly shy – the type who would have been annoyed to get blackmail rather than frightened by it.
Maybe more news will come in today.
