Trial of Buchtar Tabuni postponed

The second hearing in the trial of Buchtar Tabuni did not proceed as planned because a witness who was due to appear failed to turn up. This witness was the former director of the prison, Liberti Sitnjak who is now the director of a prison in Ambon.
Gustaf Kawar, one of the lawyers of the defendant, called on the judge to insist that the prosecutor guarantee that witnesses appear as planned and ensure that the next hearing is not postponed. It will be on 26 July.
