The ruling in the case of last year’s shooting of the Bishop of Rumbek Diocese in South Sudan that was first mentioned on January 26 has been postponed to mid-April, the judge has said.

The defense lawyer to the four remaining suspects after two were freed, Malith Jok Thiang, has been quoted as saying that “the Friday session was the final submission of the case file and their findings to the case."
“Today is the final submission, so both the prosecution team and the defense submitted their findings. We are only waiting for the judgment," Mr. Thiang said during the March 25 hearing
