The trial was due to start on Monday but was adjourned for 24 hours for legal reasons.

But the case was unable to begin today due to problems with appointing an interpreter for the defendant.

Karar, 29, appeared in the dock of the court at 3.30pm where the murder charge was put to him by the court clerk.

He entered a not guilty plea.

The trial was re-listed to start tomorrow at 10.30am before Judge Rodney Jameson, QC.
