The 10th court hearing was held in Mr. Suraj’s trial for state compensation.
The 10th court hearing in Mr. Suraj’s trial for state compensation was held on Jun 24 (Mon). This time, the main agenda was adjustment of the court schedule ahead. The chief judge expressed his strong will to deliver the judgment by himself, and the schedule was set so that we can conclude the trial by the end of this fiscal year. We can expect the chief judge would be fair in judgment, though no optimism is warranted on the situation.
After the court, the plaintiff’s lawyers confirmed the schedule of hearing, and mentioned the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution, which has been a pending matter. We, APFS, have received many inquiries about the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution, such as “ I demand the immigration department officials to face criminal charge, since what they have done was a crime. Is there any possibility for the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution to be held, when the case is dropped?” Over 1,000 signatures have been collected for requesting forced prosecution from the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution. The plaintiff’s lawyers said that the Committee would definitely be held on a timely basis, and the signatures would not be wasted.
Following is the court schedule ahead.
TBD implies change on the date. When the date changes, we announce the new date on this blog.
