The petition is dismissed, however, the trial Court will expedite the trial."
Heard learned counsel.
The petitioner has been in custody since 7.6.2005.
Learned counsel for the State says that four witnesses have been examined and fourteen witnesses remain to be examined. He also submits that if there are separate trials, he will consider moving for consolidation of the trial and examine the witnesses at the earliest.
The trial Court is directed to issue summons if application is made by the prosecution for producing the witnesses. Having regard to the fact that the petitioner has been in custody for a long period, the trial Court will not grant adjournment beyond one week.
If the prosecution fails to examine its witnesses within two months from today for reasons not attributable to the petitioner, the petitioner will be granted bail subject to the such conditions as may be considered appropriate by the trial Court.
The petition is disposed of.
