(1.)Leave granted. Counsel heard.
(2.)We find that Criminal Appeal No. 25 of 1986 has been decided without the learned councel of the appellant (accused ) who was appointed by the Court not being present. We do not wish to enter into the question as to why the councel was not present. That is a matter which can be considered by appropriate authorities, if they thing fit. In the circumstances, however, we set aside the judgement of the High Court and direct that the Criminal Appeal No.25 of 1986 shall be heared afresh by the High Court. The appellant states that he will engage his own counsel at his own costs.
(3.)The appeal is allowed as aforesaid with no order as to costs.
