Sir Bernard returned to court on Thursday for mention. His lawyer, Loani Henao, moved an application to dismiss the criminal proceeding on May 9. The matter returned for mention where Fraud Prosecutor Michael Awagl responded to Henao’s application.
Sergeant Michael Awagl told the court the informant followed procedure before the arrest of Sir Bernard.
However Henao maintained that the prosecution does not have the legal foundation to commence prosecution against Sir Bernard, who is a judicial office holder.
