Power failure disrupts court proceedings

Multiple Court proceedings were disrupted this morning by a power failure at the justice building in which a number of courts are based .

Speaking to local news outlet CNM, a media official from the Criminal Court said that the power failure happened between 10am and 11:30am this morning.

“Some of the cases were cancelled today because it was impossible to continue the court proceedings during the power failure,” said the official.

Twenty different hearings were scheduled at the Criminal Court alone during the period of the power failure, including a hearing on the murder of Abdul Muheeth (Bobby), a 21-year-old who was stabbed to death near the finance ministry in 2012 in a case of mistaken identity.
