The hearing, conducted remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic, is closed to the public and media and will take place from today (Monday June 8) until Wednesday (June 10). According to AFP, Reeb confirmed that the hearing has begun.

“The hearing has started well and the video conference is working well,” Reeb is quoted as saying.
