According to him, “we have the names of six suspects on our charge sheet, but they brought five suspects, we cannot go on with the case until we amend the charges because we can not prosecute a dead person.

 

The Attorney General also said that the case could not go on because the suspects had no legal representation.

It would be recalled that two lawyers who were representing the suspects announced their withdrawal from the case last week.
