The trial of former junior energy minister, Kern Spencer, and his co-accused Colleen Wright has been put off until April 4.

Spencer and Wright are facing corruption and money laundering charges arising from the implementation of the Cuban light bulb project.
The trial could not go ahead today because of the pending ruling by the Court of Appeal on an application brought by the presiding magistrate Judith Pusey.
Pusey is challenging a ruling of the Judicial Review Court.
She contends that the review court made an error when it quashed her decision to grant an order compelling Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Paula Llewellyn to appear as a witness at the trial.
The legal wrangling between the DPP and Senior resident magistrate has resulted in several delays in the Cuban lightbulb trial which has been before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court since 2008.
