The defendants, who were the Chief Executive Officer, Programme Manager, and Country Director, respectively, of Complete Care and Aid Foundation (a Non-Governmental Organisation), pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Despite pleading not guilty to the charges, they have been remanded at a Correctional Centre.

The prosecution counsel requested a trial date, and the case was adjourned by the judge.
