Serial conman Peter Foster’s legal fight over an alleged multi-million Bitcoin scam will have to wait until 2023 after another legal delay.
The 60-year-old faces a raft of charges over an alleged $2 million Bitcoin fraud in Hong Kong in 2019 and 2020.
Foster chose not to attend a legal mention on charges of five counts of fraud, two counts of obtaining or dealing with identification information and one count of falsifying records in the Southport court on Wednesday.
Defence lawyer Lee Quinn has sought additional material to be disclosed by the prosecution, forcing the matter to be adjourned until January.
Magistrate Catherine Pirie said there had been ongoing delays by Foster’s legal team.
“How many adjournments do you need to finalise disclosure,” the magistrate asked in the court.
“When is this going to come to an end … There have been numerous adjournments with respect to disclosure. If it is a continuing issue, then a magistrate will have to decide.”
The case was adjourned until February 24 for further mention.
