Mel Gibson ‘may have to listen to rant tapes during deposition’By ANI
Monday, November 1, 2010
WASHINGTON - Mel Gibson during his deposition might be forced by Grigorieva Oksana’s legal team to listen to former’s rants that Oksana secretly taped.
Oksana’s lawyers are “seriously considering” playing the tapes in front of Gibson, partly to show that he physically abused Oksana and partly to prove that he’s an unfit parent, Tmz.com reports.
In a first time “no holds barred” deposition, Mel will testify under oath in the custody case.
Oksana’s legal team will use certain statements that Mel has made about his conduct as well as other statements to challenge his credibility.
The defense believes if Mel asserts his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination during the depo, Oksana’s team can use that against him by pointing to the earlier statements. (ANI)
