Director of Public Prosecution and investigation officer have been given 15 days to file a report on how the case against Rally driver Maxine should resume.
This comes after, the magistrate, Bernard Ochi ruled that the case that was filed in court last year cannot be closed without presenting findings to the court.
“The investigation officer has obligations to inform the court of the findings. I give the DPP and the investigating officer 15 days to file a report on the findings and how they wish to proceed with matter,” court noted
The magistrate said that, it will be abuse of court if the case will be closed without any findings.
“That’s the court procedure…”
Moreover, the court also directed that the property where Maxine and her late boyfriend Asad Khan live, be released back to the owner in the next five days.
“I direct in the event that they have not collected any evidence including forensics evidence and photographs. I give him five days to do so and return the premises to the owner,” Bernard ruled.
The rally driver was presented in court in 2022, after an alleged fight between her and khan broke out, where Khan was seriously injures and later succumbed to his death.
