Meesto back in court Sept. 26

The man accused in a Jan. 12 break and enter and robbery north of Edam made his latest court appearance Thursday.

Dairan Meesto appeared by closed-circuit TV in North Battleford provincial court Thursday morning. His counsel indicated there was still a substantial amount of outstanding disclosure needed to be turned over to the defence, and the expectation was it would take a week to a week and a half for that to happen.
