The courts had been on vacation since August which saw a halt in the businessman’s much followed trial.

The case was supposed to resume last week at the high court in Bundung but suffered a blow as the judge did not sit.

And on Monday, the absence of the prosecution saw the case adjourned to the end of the month.

According to the court clerk, the state’s attorney called to say his witness was not available.
