Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the ongoing corruption trial of Prime Minister Benjamin have reportedly reached an agreement to further slash the list of witnesses who are slated to testify before court.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, the list of witnesses has been cut from over 300 to just some 55.

The move could see the prime minister himself seeking the stand as soon as next year, the report says.

The trial has been ongoing for more than three years and the sides have already agreed to one reduction in witnesses.
