THE judgment on the case against the former permanent secretary for Ministry of Infrastructure Development and his wife will be made on April 27.
The decision should have made yesterday at the Honiara Magistrate Court but the presiding Magistrate is still in Lata.
Henry Aife Murray and his wife Rose were charged for corruption related offences.
The Murrays were charged following an allegation relating to a series of offences alleged between 2014 and 2017 in relation to multiple payments of motor vehicle hire charges to a company that police alleged was registered to Mr Murray and his wife.
The value of those payments is estimated to the excess of $1.1million and as a result of that they both face a range of serious charges.
Prosecution alleged that those payments, allegedly made through cheques and electronic fund transfers, were deposited into their ANZ account in the name of Krash Transport and Marketing.
Lazarus Kwaiga of L & L lawyers is representing both defendants while the office of the Director Public Prosecution is prosecuting the case in court.
