New hearing into application


THE hearing of application into the case of Karunapedige, Chandana Suresh Gunathilaka has adjourned to November 30 2022.

The prosecution is applying to the court to move back the trial date as the complainant will be away overseas for medical reasons during the trial in February 2023.

Defence Lawyer Lazarus Kwaiga informed the court that they will object to the application, however they are yet to make a proper response.

He informed court yesterday that the building where his office located, was affected by the earthquake on Tuesday afternoon and he is not able to get his files from his office.

He then asked for an adjournment so that he can respond to the application by the prosecution.

Principal Magistrate Fatimah Taeburi then adjourned the case to next week for hearing of the application.

Police Prosecutor Abel Maelanga appears on behalf of his colleague John Teula.
