Maseru, Dec. 11 — The High Court through Justice Polo Banyane says there is no effort from the prosecution to see that a case in which some army members accused of killing three men at Mafeteng in 2012, proceeds to finality.
The court said this on Monday after it was informed by the legal representative for the prosecution in this matter, Advocate Mosoenyane Masiphole, that witnesses are not available. It was also informed that subpoenas were delivered to the Mafeteng Police Station last month, but there is no explanation whether they were served to the witnesses.
The court stated that there is no justification why the witnesses are not before court. It indicated that it is the duty of the prosecution to ensure that accused are brought to trial and that the case proceeds to finality.
