Apparently for the public outcry that has gritted the decision of the Code of Conduct Tribunal decision to adjourn the corruption trial of the embattled President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki INDEFINITELY, the tribunal has finally fixed next Tuesday as the new date for resumption the trial.
Dr. Saraki is standing trial on a 16-count charge of alleged false asset declaration.
The tribunal on Wednesday adjourned following a request by the prosecution counsel to adjourn to allow its key witness, Micheal Wetkas, attend to another matter at the Federal High Court.
The CCT, in the statement by its head of press and public relation, Ibraheem Al-hassan, said the trails will continue between June 7 and 9.
“The decision for the adjournment to the new dates was sequel to the abrupt written request from the lead prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacob (SAN) that his PWI Mr. Michael Wetkas was scheduled to testify before the Federal High Court, Abuja, in the same date, thus; 1st June 2016,” the statement said
