The bail hearing for Mr. Okay Machisa could not proceed today yet again at the High Court in spite of being postponed on three different occasions prior to the date, as the Criminal Registrar did not furnish the judge, Chatukuta J with the full record of the case.
The counsel for the accused made a request to stand the matter down in order to bring the Criminal Registrar to explain in court why he did not furnish the judge with the full record. The request was denied and the judge ordered the counsel to meet her in chambers after the roll.
The bail hearing was further postponed to the 28th of January 2013.
