The trial of the embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki, is to continue on Monday June 7-9, Code of Conduct Tribunal has said.
Mr. Saraki is standing trial on a 16-count charge of alleged false asset declaration.
The tribunal had on Wednesday, June 1, 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 chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, adjourned the trial, but failed to give a date for its continuation.
Following media publications that the trial was adjourned “indefinitely”, the CCT, in statement signed by its head of press and public relation, Ibraheem Al-hassan, said the next date for the trial would be June 7.
“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.
The statement said the trial was not adjourned indefinitely.
