“It begun with a statement from the prosecution explaining to the court why their request to bring the seven former detainees, who are now in Kenya did not materialise,” reports radio Miraya.


However, they said they are trying to bring them to stand trial here through the Foreign ministry who will use their diplomatic channels to ensure that the seven also come and face trial.


The defence team said the condition of the bail of the seven was not clear and requested the court to proceed with the trial of the 4 detainees who appeared before court.


Prosecution presented a Maj Gen in the Police to give his testimony before the court on the events that transpired on the 15 and 16 of December.


Pagan Amum, former SPLM secretary-general, is the most prominent defendant on trial, alongside ex-deputy defense minister Majak d’Agoot, former army chief of staff Oyai Deng, and diplomat Ezekiel Gatkuoth.


During the second hearing on March 12, Judge James Alala Deng, the president of the court, agreed to adjourn the trial for one week until 19 March in order to allow the seven time to return to Juba.


The seven bailed former political prisoners are Deng Alor, Gier Chuang, Kosti Manibe, John Luk, Cirino Hiteng, Madut Biar and Chol Tong.


They were released in late January to the custody of the Kenyan government on the grounds that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute them while their safety could no longer be guaranteed in South Sudan, according to the justice minister.


The recording purports to be about the breaking of the armory on the night of 15 December.


Taban Deng, who is described by the prosecution as the operational commander of the insurrection, is said to describe in the call events ongoing within the presidential guards unit.
