The lawyers involved in the Cuban light bulb trial are now working to set aside three weeks for the trial.




When the matter came up in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today both sides agreed that they would develop a schedule so that the trial can go ahead uninterrupted.



The trial has been in limbo for more than a year because of legal wranglings between the presiding magistrate Judith Pusey and Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn.



The case was set for mention on May 20.



Former Junior Energy Minister, Kern Spencer, and his co-accused Colleen Wright are facing corruption and money laundering charges.



They are accused of benefiting improperly from the Cuban light bulb project.
