High Court Judge, Adrian Fisher has set a new adjourned date in the corruption trial of Samura Kamara and five others.

The matter was initially adjourned for October 6 but the court said the matter will now be adjourned to Friday, October 27.

This matter had been adjourned to the 6th October 2023.

“Owing to pressing court commitments, this matter would now be readjourned,” Justice Fisher said in a notice.

The High Court Judge further notified lawyers and accused persons that the matter will now sit on “a daily basis (including Saturdays if necessary) until completion”.

He said that the court will not entertain any further adjournments except in “exceptional circumstances”.

Samura Kamara and five other accused persons are standing trial on allegations of corruption involving mismanagement of funds meant for the renovation of Sierra Leone’s Chancery Building in New York.

The former Foreign Affairs Minister in the Ernest Bai Koroma administration is in court to answer to allegations including misleading the principal and misappropriation of public funds.

Kamara had longed denied the allegation equating it to a plot to smear his image.

All accused persons have denied the allegations excluding US citizens Jules Sanders Davis, who has never been in court.
