The court case involving former Commissioner of Customs Danville Walker, who is charged with breaching the Contractor General Act, is set to be heard on January 30.
Walker is charged with failure to comply in the prescribed time with a request from the Office of the Contractor General (OCG) and obstructing an investigation of the Office into breaches by the Customs Department.
When the matter came up in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrateís Court today, Walkerís attorney, Keith Bishop, informed the court that his client has another matter in another court.
The magistrate granted Bishopís request to adjourn the trial until the other case has been completed.
Walker has filed an application in the Constitutional Court questioning the Contractor Generalís authority under the Contractor Generalís Act to probe the Customs Department.
He is also challenging the recommendation from the Contractor General that charges be brought against him.
The Constitutional Court is expected to hear the application on January 13 and 14 next year.
