Omotoso’s woes continue as jurisdiction appeal is dismissed

Omotoso’s woes continue as jurisdiction appeal is dismissed

Rape-accused Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso along with his cohorts Lusanda Sulani and Zukiswa Sitho, will be forced to petition to the Constitutional Court after their unsuccessful bid to have all international charges, brought against them, excluded from their trial. This bid came after Omotoso and the other accused raised questions of whether or not the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth had the jurisdiction to deal with these charges. According to the defence, the High Court does not have the authority to hear all of the charges that pertain to this case because some of the criminal offences are believed to have happened outside of South Africa but as of Monday the 21st of October, the application for leave to appeal is dismissed.

The accused face 97 charges, among them rape, human trafficking and racketeering. #Omotoso #OmotosoTrial
