CCT Postpones Saraki’s Case Indefinitely
The final ruling on Saraki's no case submission was postponed on Thursday afternoon.
The court said its decision was hinged on the fact that more time is needed before a final decision can be reached.
Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar apologized for delaying the case and said a new date for the ruling will be communicated to all parties.
Saraki is standing trial at the CCT over false assets declaration and money laundering.
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has slammed a 13-count charge of corruption on him.
But the Senate President had on May 26 filed the no-case submission before the tribunal, saying all evidence presented by the prosecution lacks merit.
However, the federal government’s prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), said a "serious prima facie case" has been established against the Senate President.
The trial which began in September 2015 has in recent times suffered setbacks mostly at the instance of the prosecution.
