The judge found the converted shed was not unlike private bars in homes across the country where families shared drinks with friends.EndsTRIAL OF ‘BOG HOTEL’ ADJOURNED AGAIN was last modified: September 7th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Bog HotelPatsy Broganshebeenlast_img
