THE legal case involving former Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Rural Development will resume on January 26.
The extended time was given to allow time for Selina Boso’s lawyer to submit a formal representation to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution.
Public Solicitor Lawyer George Gray is seeking a withdrawal of the charge against his client.
Gray assured the court application for the withdrawal of charges will be made.
Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Jim Seuika adjourned Boso’s case to allow Gray to submit his representation and for the Director of Public Prosecutions to respond before returning to the court.
Police charged Boso with one count of failure to furnish information or failure to produce documents as requested by the Ombudsman Office or any member of staff acting on the Ombudsman’s behalf.
This was in relation to the allegation between May 29, 2013 and September 25, 2014, where she allegedly failed to furnish information on the Rural Constituency Development funds as lawfully requested by the Ombudsman and members of his staff.
