Saraki's trial adjourned to June 7

03 June 2016, 17:23

Abuja - The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has fixed June 7, 8 and 9 for the continuation of the trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on the alleged false declaration of assets.

In a statement signed on Thursday by the Head, Press and Public Relations, CCT, Ibraheem Al-hassan, the Chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar, fixed the dates for the continuation of the cross-examination of the Principal Witness 1 (PW1), Michael Wetkas.

According to reports by The Guardian, the statement stated that the decision for the adjournment to the new dates was sequel to the abruptly written request from the lead prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), stating that his PWI, Wetkas, was scheduled to testify before the Federal High Court, Abuja, the same date (June 1).

News24 had reported that the absence of a witness of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Micheal Wetkas, stalled the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

At the resumed hearing in Abuja, for the continuation of cross examination of Wetkas, EFCC lead prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), sent a letter to the tribunal seeking adjournment.
