Chris Huhne to stand trial over speeding points on Monday – Telegraph

The Liberal Democrat former Cabinet Minister formally entered a plea of not guilty today to the charge of perverting the course of justice.

Mr Huhne, 58, resigned as Energy Secretary last year after the Crown Prosecution Service announced that he had been charged over an allegation that he persuaded his former wife, Vicky Pryce, to take his penalty points for a speeding offence almost a decade ago.

Wearing a charcoal grey suit with a white shirt and a green-and-blue striped tie, Mr Huhne said “not guilty” in a strong and clear voice when he was asked to enter a plea at London’s Southwark Crown Court today.
