PostSubject: BREAKING: Saraki loses bid to stop trial at Code of Conduct   2016-10-27, 14:55

Attempt by the senate president Bukola Saraki to stop his trial at the code of conduct tribunal (CCT) met a brick wall as the Court of Appeal dismissed his application.

Sahara Reporters writes that the five-man panel of the Court of Appeal in Abuja said his trial should continue.

Bukola Saraki, the Senate president and chairman of the National Assembly now has to return to the dock at the CCT in November.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday struck out the application filed by Saraki challenging the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to entertain the charges against him.

Sahara Reporters writes that in a unanimous decision read by Justice Abdul Aboki, the five-man panel ruled that the appeal lacked merit and thus totally dismissed.

The court affirmed that the Tribunal had the power to entertain and try Saraki for the charges brought against him.

With the court ruling, Saraki’s trial at the CCT, where he is facing a 16-count charge of corruption and false assets declaration, will continue on November 7 and 8.

Saraki has been in Geneva, Switzerland since Sunday, October 23 where he led a National Assembly delegation to partake in the 135th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly taking place in Geneva, Switzerland, with the theme: “The Role of Parliaments in Protecting Human Rights of Citizens.”
