Again, court fines FG over failure to commence Sowore’s trial

Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, while being arraigned.

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has again fined the Federal Government over its failure to commence the trial of Omoyele Sowore.

Mr Sowore who publishes Sahara Reporters is facing trial bordering on cyberstalking, treason and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.

At the resume hearing, the prosecutors team appeared to have come unprepared. TODAY POLITICS observed that those who appeared in court were different from the lawyers who initiated the trial, the new team amended the charges an demanded for time to study and proceed with the trial.

Justice Ojukwu who presided over the court sitting thereafter ordered the prosecution team to pay the sum of N200,000 to the defence counsel as cost.

This is the second time the Court has imposed fine on the government. Last year, the govt. was fined N100,000 cost to be paid to the defence team for delaying commencement of the trial.

The case has been adjourned to Thursday.
