Thomas Cook reps Richard Carson and Nicola Gibson, who face trial along with nine Greeks over the deaths of two children in Corfu in 2006, could learn their fate early next week.


The prosecution case in the trial over the deaths of Christianne Shepherd, seven, and six-year-old brother Robert who died after breathing in poisonous fumes from a faulty gas boiler while they were staying at the Louis Corcyra Beach Hotel in Gouvia in October 2006, rested today.


The last prosecution witness who appeared today was a doctor who examined the family who were in the room before the Shepherds.


Each defendant is now able to call witnesses and the trial is expected to be completed by the end of the week.


Carson and Gibson are defendents number 10 and 11 on the list so are not expected to take the stand until the very end of the process and a verdict could be delivered in the Corfu court as early as Monday.
