In the absence of the defendants in Court, Counsel for the complainants, Lawyer Ibrahim Tommy made an application for a bench warrant in respect  of all defendants in the matter.

After the application for a bench warrant was made, Magistrate Moody encouraged counsel to first serve a notice to the defendants and after which, if they fail to show up in court, counsel may make the necessary application for a bench warrant.
