Court sets to commence the hearing of Poloo’s appeal— Lawyer reveals
According to him, the court is yet to set a date for the hearing of his client’s appeal and expressed preparedness to working on necessary documents to hasten the hearing process.
Speaking in a media interview, Mr. Vortia revealed that all records from the Circuit Court were being transferred to the High Court after which a trial date would be set.
“Honestly, we are settling records. Records are being transmitted from the Circuit Court to the High Court. So hopefully by next week, we will settle those records, and then a date will be given for hearing of that bail. We must transmit to court.
All that transpired at the Circuit Court must be brought to the High Court for the High Court judge to go through the whole process because he or she was not privy to what happened at the Circuit Court to help them have an informed mind to determine the appeal as to whether the grounds that we were fighting for is right,” he explained.
