Tyler Challenges Changes to GW Indictments

A request by the Special Presidential Taskforce prosecuting government officials for their alleged roles in the US$950,000 bribery scandal brought forth by Global Witness (GW), for Criminal Court ‘C’ to make changes to the two indictments with two separate defendants to be tried together, did not go down well with one of the accused.
