The state closed its case after the last witness Francis Cole who is an arms expert gave his evidence on the use of the arms that were allegedly found in possession of Peter Michael Hitshman.

 

In her length application for discharge, Ms Beatrice Mtetwa said there is no need to put the accused, Bennett to his defence saying there is no evidence to show that Bennett acted in common purpose with Hitschman.

 

Ms Mtetwa told the court that the investigating officers did not take serial numbers of the laptop that contained the alleged emails that implicated Bennet in the arms cache allegations.
