Lahore: Plea for cancelling Bo Brekke killer’s bail adjourned
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday adjourned till February 11 the proceedings of a petition, seeking cancellation of bail granted to the alleged killer of Salvation Army Pakistan Commander Colonel Bo Brekke.
Advocate Rana Ejaz Ahmad submitted his power of attorney on behalf of the accused and sought time to prepare his arguments.
On December 12, 2007, Major Peter Murray Scadden, property secretary of Salvation Army Headquarters (Lahore) has moved the petition challenging the anti-terrorism court for granting bail to the accused, Major Mark Younas Joseph. The trial court had granted bail to the accused on the grounds that no direct evidence was available against him and the police have also recorded the statements of the prosecution witnesses after 12 days of the incident.
Major Murray in his petition submitted that the trial court had acted under the wrong impression. He said the court had admitted the bail of a nominated accused. In the light of prosecution witnesses’ statements, he said, it was crystal clear that the accused had confessed to the murder.
