Judge Sekahjibo Wallor of Criminal Court “A” has reassigned hearing into the murder trial of the late Public Procurement Concession Commission (PPCCC) Chairmen Keith Jubah to February 23, 2010 upon a request made by defense counsel.
Lawyers representing nine defendants indicted for allegedly killing the former PPCC Chairman Keith Jubah, Thursday filed a motion informing the court that they received the documentary evidence from the prosecution on Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 9:05 AM, thus making it impossible for them to proceed with the case on the same day.
Judge Wallor consented to the defense counsel's request and therefore ruled that the case be postponed to February 23, 2010 to grant them time to peruse the documentary evidence of the persecution, to enable them prepare for the legal battle.
The prosecution on the other hand agreed with the defense's application of continuance, but called on the defense team to stop filling motion that will delay the trial.
The Government of Liberia late last year indicted, Tommy Cooper, Ceasar Kolako, Joseph Kerkula, Andrew Pewee, Joe Harris, Zinnah Padmore, Joseph O. Kollie, James Langa and Singbeh with three counts charges including Criminal Conspiracy, Murder and Criminal Mischief for allegedly killing Mr. Keith Jubah.
Defendants are yet to answer to these charges.
