The United States government has gathered over 2,700 electronic files as part of evidence for trial in the $1.1million fr*ud case involving suspended police officer, Abba Kyari, a court filing has shown.
Other sets of investigative reports and “new discoveries,” including documents obtained from foreign law enforcement agencies with over 6,700 pages, are being processed by prosecutors, the document also says.
According to Premium Times, the US government has already handed to the defence approximately 2.31 GB of data consisting of 2,707 electronic files. The files contain, among others, exported chat logs, Cellebrite reports, WhatApp messages, audio recordings, and other social media content.
The application added that prosecutors were processing approximately 6,773 pages of additional discovery expected to be produced in two weeks’ time.
US prosecutors along with three of the six indicted defendants in the fr*ud case have asked the U.S. District Court for Central California to postpone trial from October 2021 to May 17, 2022.
Apart from the need for additional time by the defence lawyers to prepare for the case, US prosecutors also asked for more time to process troves of documents, including those obtained from foreign countries.
