THE HEARING of evidences into the case of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development, Selina Bosa did not proceed, Tuesday.
This was because the court room was used by another magistrate to hear other cases.
Public Prosecutor Sirepu Ramosaea also has a case to attend to in the High Court in the afternoon.
As a result, the matter was then adjourned to today for the trial to continue.
The trial started on Monday before Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Kouhota, where two prosecution witnesses gave evidences.
The two witnesses are the Ombudsman Joe Poraiwai and the Director of Investigations from the Ombudsman Office.
Boso faces a charge of failure to furnish information or failure to produce document as requested by the Ombudsman office or any member of staff acting on behalf of her duties.
She was charged contrary to section 20 (2) of Ombudsman (Further Provisions) Act.
This was in relation to the allegation between 29 May, 2013 and 25, September, 2014.
Prosecution alleged she failed to furnish information on the Rural Constituency Development funds as lawfully requested by the Ombudsman and members of his staff.
George Gray of Public Solicitor’s Office represents Boso while Public Prosecutor Sirepu Ramosaea appeared for the Crown.
