The procedure at the trial follows a process like this: The Prosecution should state the nature of the offence you have been charged with and the evidence that he/she is relying on to prove that you are guilty. The Prosecution may examine its witnesses, who can be cross-examined by your lawyer. After cross-examination, the Prosecution may re-examine its witness.
After the Prosecution concludes its case, your lawyer may request the Court to dismiss the case against you on the ground that there is no case to answer. The Prosecution may respond to this.
Upon the close of the Prosecution’s case at the trial, if the Judge is satisfied that there is sufficient evidence which, if accepted, may support the charge(s) against you, you will be asked by the Court to state your defence (including calling any witnesses and producing any documentary evidence). If no defence is presented, you may be found guilty and convicted.
However, if the trial Judge finds that the Prosecution’s evidence in support of the charge is lacking or from examination of the evidence is not convinced of your guilt beyond reasonable doubt, then the Court must acquit you, i.e. find you not guilty.
If your lawyer raises a reasonable doubt in the Prosecution’s case, then you may be acquitted and released. If not, you will be found guilty and convicted. Alternatively, the Court may consider the actions that warrant conviction under an amended charge.
