The case continued today be- fore Mr Justice Grazio Mercie- ca. As the sitting began, the BA's lawyer, Professor Ian Refalo, suggested to the court that the case was less urgent in view of the fact that the election was over. Lawyer Paul Borg Olivier, appearing for the PN together with lawyer Francis Zammit Dimech, vociferously disagreed, arguing that the size of the elec- toral majority was immaterial to the issue at hand, which was unbalanced political broadcast- ing. The lawyer criticised the authority for "making every ef- fort to drag out the case." Professor Refalo informed the court that the BA would be filing a note in the acts of the case later this week, in which it would inform the court wheth- er it had any further evidence. Lawyer Edward Gatt, ap- pearing for PBS, together with lawyer Mark Vassallo, told the judge that the TV station had no further evidence from his end. The case had also been filed against the minister under whose remit the public broad- caster fell at the time, Carmelo Abela. Although elected to Par- liament, Abela was not given a ministerial post in the present cabinet. In view of this, the law- yers asked the court to modify the acts of the case to reflect this development. The case continues on 21 April.
