Antoniolli trial wrap: What's happened so far
FORMER mayor Andrew Antoniolli's trail for fraud within the Ipswich City Council continues Monday.
The defence closed its argument today, with six character witnesses taking the stand.
Antoniolli's wife Karina was in the box to defend her husband's community standing and answer questions about pamper packs and a bicycle.
On Monday the former mayor was in tears as he sat out the front of court.
The trial continues today, with closing arguments expected from the barristers, however the case may continue on.
Last week we brought you coverage live from court, revealing details on the court case:
On Thursday witnesses at the centre of allegations about a bicycle Antoniolli allegedly bought using ratepayer cash has provided a mixed recollection of events.
While a secretary in Antoniolli's office for more than a decade has recalled feeling uncomfortable allegedly using council funds to pay for a bike "won" by her old boss.
On Wednesday the former mayor told Corruption Commission officials he knew Ipswich City Council's policies were flawed as he admitted to using council funds to buy auction items.
On day two one charge was dropped and another amended as Antoniolli stood trial relating to his purchase of auction items.
Court proceedings were due to kick off on Tuesday with the court due to hear the opening address, however legal delays resulted in an adjournment.
