Court Adjourns Witness Hearing on ESLSE Former OfficialsJanuary 2, 2018 - The Federal High Court 15th criminal bench has adjourned the hearing of witnesses over the case of nine Ethiopian Shipping & Logistics Services Enterprise (ESLSE) officials, reports Addis Fortune. The court also received the charges of the two former deputy CEOs, Mesfin Tefera and Sisay Abaferda. The Court has set sessions for February 14, 15, 27, 28 and the first of March, to hear the prosecutor's witnesses. During the hearing conducted earlier this week, over the preliminary objections submitted by the accused, the Court overruled every objection as they did not substantiate the dismissal of a trial. The nine officials were accused of causing a total damage of 83.7 million Br to the government.
