we have had to date were that no public characterisation of the discussions would be made.

"We can only think that the violation of that agreement is a distressingly calculated one. It must be noted that we strongly disagree with their characterisation and we hope that the prosecution will not unilaterally take any further steps which will further polarise the situation," Arshack said.

He said it is "precisely the desire" to avoid further polarisation that he is asking the federal court to extend the time within which the prosecution must either indict or be ready for a preliminary hearing.

Arshack said his client is herself asking for extension of the deadline since the date itself is "interfering" with the possibility of an "early, expeditious and judicially economical resolution.

"Repeatedly, the prosecution has explained that the existence of the January 13, 2014 deadline was driving its determination to immediately seek an indictment. We have made this application to extend the time period because we wish to eliminate the pressure on the situation and permit the efforts which are ongoing to resolve this matter, both between the parties to this criminal litigation and elsewhere to move forward," Arshack added.
