Suspended Magistrate

Case against Pindipia thrown out

Pindipia appeared before Justice Panuel Mogish today for mention where the matter was dismissed after the State filed a formal notice (nolle prosequi) that it will no longer pursue the matter.

Two main witnesses the State intended to rely on their statements in the trial did not want to come before the court.

Justice Mogish quashed the indictment or charge against Pindipia and dismissed his case on Tuesday after it was scheduled to go for trial.

He said this case reflects back on police and how they arrest accused persons without even collecting enough evidence.
