FREDERICTON - A senior employee with the New Brunswick government charged with obstruction of justice has had his case adjourned.
A lawyer appeared on behalf of Peter Andrews today in a Fredericton court.
The matter was set over until April 26.
Andrews is the executive director of corporate services with the province's Department of Aquaculture, Agriculture and Fisheries.
The 56-year-old Nasonworth man was charged in February after a lengthy RCMP probe into a complaint from the Opposition Liberals.
The Mounties say they began investigating last spring after receiving a letter from then-interim Liberal leader Victor Boudreau.
The letter alleged that someone within government may have interfered with an investigation under the provincial Aquaculture Act.
