Judge Speaks On Ryan Giggs Trial
Judge Hilary Manley instructed the jury, which was made up of seven women and five men, that a unanimous decision must be reached and that Giggs is not being tried for being “extremely disloyal.”

In addition to being charged with assaulting ex-Kate Greville, 38, and Emma Greville, 26, on November 1, 2020, Giggs, 48, is also accused of using coercive and controlling behaviour toward Kate Greville between the years of 2017 and 2020. He disputes every accusation. Was this, as the defence argues, a relationship that had its ups and downs, though more ups than downs, but ultimately went off the rails mostly due to the complainant’s inability to accept Ryan Giggs’ serial womanizing? Asked Judge Manley.
Greville Kate has embellished and changed their regular arguments into a portrayal of control, violence, and abuse. Has she demanded revenge for that womanizing? she said.
Was the connection more nefarious and dark where a man exacted and abused his power over a helpless lady and when he realized that power was ineffective, he physically assaulted his spouse and her sister? You have been informed by the defence that Ryan Giggs is not being tried for being disloyal in his relationships.
This is not a court of morals, she said, therefore Mr Giggs is not on trial for being extremely disloyal. Both the defence and prosecution attorneys delivered their closing arguments on Monday. According to Ms Greville’s attorney, Peter Wright QC, “This case is about the misuse of power by a guy over another human being. Actually, it’s a legend that dates back as far as the hills.
It concerns a man who believes, or believed, that he could treat Kate Greville in any way he liked and that he could get away with it because the appalling history of their relationship showed that his excesses were suffered by her, excused, and kept secret. Mr Daw’s answer, however, was to assert that the prosecution had “cherry-picked” the material and to emphasize to the jury that it was their responsibility, not Giggs’, to prove their case.
He urged the jury to evaluate the “deficits” in Giggs’ testimony while being “scrupulously impartial.” “Saying “probably guilty” is a vote for innocence, he explained. “Probably is not incontrovertibly true.”
The trial goes on.
