Coalmont feud case drags on

Princeton court briefs

A Surrey man who is facing charges related to a dispute in Coalmont expressed frustration with the court process Thursday, while making an appearance by telephone.

Karl Gatzky is being tried a second time for uttering threats, after a previous conviction was overturned, and is also charged with breaching a probation order.

“I’m suggesting we drop the case and also the charges of the breach of probation,” said Gatzky. “You’ve been dragging your feet, the Crown and the RCMP.”

While Gatzky was scheduled for arraignment he did not enter a plea, and both cases were adjourned until January.
