Two prosecution witnesses, the Deputy Editor-In-Chief and News Editor of the pro-government Daily Observer newspaper has so far testified in the case. During the court proceedings, Mr Keita complained of receiving text messages threatening his life. The complains were reported to the police for further investigations into the matter.
