Angelika diary mentioned accused

Jurors in the Angelika Kluk trial have heard how the 23-year-old wrote seven times in her diary about the man accused of her murder.

Diary extracts were read out at Edinburgh’s High Court during the final day of evidence by the prosecution.

It is not yet known whether accused Peter Tobin will testify as the defence case gets underway on Tuesday.

Tobin, 60, who worked as a handyman in St Patrick’s Church at the time of Angelika’s death, denies all charges.

During the final day of the Crown case, Polish translator Sasza Depczynski said he had been asked to translate the diary into English.

The court was told that in contrast to the seven times Angelika had mentioned her alleged killer, she had constantly referred to her 40-year-old married lover Martin MacAskill.

Angelika also recorded what appeared to be a number of arguments between herself and parish priest Father Gerry Nugent.
