Tribunal Warns Against Posting Video Clips Of Its Proceeding On Social Media

Code of Conduct TribunalThe Code of Conduct of Tribunal on Wednesday gave a stern warning against posting video clips of its proceedings on social media.
The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, gave the warning at the resumed proceedings earlier today.
According to Mr. Umar, the tribunal would not hesitate to apply the full weight of the law against anyone who disobeys the directive.
It would be recalled that a video clip of the judge’s heated exchange with Ajibola Oluyede, a lawyer representing the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, was published last week on the internet.
Mr. Saraki is currently being prosecuted at the tribunal on 13-count charge of false and anticipatory declaration of assets as well as corruption.
The CCT chairman noted that those who posted the video clip did so with the sole purpose of misleading the public about the actual happening in the tribunal.
He, however, said the tribunal would discuss with both the prosecution and defence counsel on possibility of inviting NTA, AIT, and Channels for a live telecast to avoid misrepresentation.
Mr. Umar also directed that all security personnel carrying arms to vacate the courtroom.
