The case between the Maritime Authority and the families of the four cadets who died on the training base reopened yesterday with the defense counsel filing a motion that the court's procedural matter has not been complied with by the court.
The Prosecuting Counsel addressing the press after the motion was filed by the defense counsel said the defense counsel raised the motion that the fact that one hearing was not conducted before the judge's ruling creates procedural error.
The prosecuting counsels stated that during their motion of summary judgment, the court's attention was drawn on the fact that the four cadets died in the present of the trainers, meaning they died under the supervision of the Maritime authority and that Maritime admitted that the cadets died at 9:00 AM. "Based on these evidences, we argued that Maritime indicated in her document that the four cadets were under the supervision of their teachers and show the time they died. In that case there is no point to argue further."
The prosecutions said it was that time the judge decided to refer the matter to the jury.
"What they are saying today is, let's go back on what the prosecutions suggested previously."
"We from the family side agreed that these requirements are in line with law; we don't have to be in the hurry; we will satisfy the defendants" the prosecuting counsel said.
