Excessive Court docket choose’s scathing ruling questioned Vardy’s proof AND credibility 

The choose’s evaluation of Rebekah’s credibility was nothing wanting scathing, based mostly on her three witness statements and giving proof for 2 and a half days.

I keep in mind when assessing her proof the diploma of stress she was naturally feeling, given the excessive profile nature of the trial, the abuse that she has suffered for the reason that Reveal Submit was revealed, and the size of time she was within the witness field.

‘Nonetheless, I discover that it’s, sadly, essential to deal with Ms Vardy’s proof with very appreciable warning. There have been many events when her proof was manifestly inconsistent with the contemporaneous documentary proof (e.g. in relation to the World Cup 2018 and the photoshopped footage), and others the place she was evasive (e.g. in relation to the Automobile Crash Submit and Mr X).

‘Ms Vardy was usually unwilling to make factual concessions, nevertheless implausible her proof. This inevitably impacts my general view of her credibility, though I’ve borne in thoughts that untruthful proof could also be given to masks guilt or to fortify innocence.’

‘Somewhat, her indignation on the accusation flows, in my judgment, from a mix of things. Ms Vardy’s half in disclosing info to The Solar was, it appears to me, unthinking fairly than a part of a thought of and concerted enterprise observe.

‘Consequently, there was a level of self-deception on her half relating to the extent to which she was concerned, in addition to a level of justified resentment on the exaggerated manner during which her position has at occasions been offered in the course of the litigation. ‘

The choose stated she thought Rebekah regarded the data on Coleen’s personal Instagram account as ‘innocent’, including: ‘When Ms Rooney repeatedly made clear her objection to her personal posts being given to the press, Ms Vardy appears to have seen this as making a fuss about nothing and attention-seeking.

‘As well as, it’s evident that Ms Vardy genuinely believed that some details about Ms Rooney was being given to the press by (unknown) others and that she has unfairly been made the scapegoat for press protection of the Rooneys.’

As for Rebekah’s former agent Caroline Watt, whose absence on the trial on well being grounds Coleen’s lawyer David Sherborne had described as ‘Hamlet with out the Prince’, the choose agreed, saying: ‘Given the allegation that info from the Personal Instagram Account was disclosed on to journalists at The Solar by Ms Watt, with Ms Vardy’s data and approval, Ms Watt is a crucial witness to the issues in concern, whose absence is putting.’

And whereas she accepted that Ms Watt’s well being had been affected, she believed the primary motive for not wanting to present proof was that she had lied.

‘Partially, little question, that’s as a result of she shouldn’t be somebody who has beforehand been, or ever sought to be, within the public eye, and being a key witness in a trial of this nature would have been uncomfortable even when she had nothing to cover.

‘Nonetheless, I’m compelled to the conclusion that the first motive Ms Watt was so very reluctant to present proof, and has suffered adversely from the stress to take action, was that she knew that to a big extent the proof in her statements was unfaithful.’
