Forgery hearing delayed for businessman Christopher Kerr

Published:Wednesday | August 13, 2014 | 1:57 PM

Businessman, Christopher Kerr, is to return the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on September 19 for his hearing into a forgery case.



Kerr also appeared in court yesterday, but the matter failed to get underway.



His attorney, Hugh Wildman, says the matter could not proceed because prosecutors failed to hand over certain documents.



Kerr is charged with four counts of forgery and two counts of uttering forged documents.



Prosecutors have told the court that the businessman has three birth certificates, three passports, two driver's licenses and two sets of taxpayer registration numbers.



However, Wildman maintains that his client, who was born Donovan Watson Kerr, did a deed poll and changed his name to Christopher Watson-Kerr.
