They accused the former party executives for conspiring and maliciously publishing and granting interviews alleging that they misappropriated the state’s party funds.

The trio prayed the court to take into cognizance the offences contrary to section 97 and 392 of the Penal Code Law and tried the accused persons accordingly.

However, the counsel to the defendants, Barrister Bukani, raised preliminary objections that his clients were not in court because they were not directly served with court summons.
