The government has given an undertaking to the court that it would drop the charges under the MCOCA within two weeks, court sources said.
After Salem was extradited from Portugal in 2005, MCOCA charges were slapped against him in this case.
"Charging him under MCOCA was breach of extradition conditions. That's why the government will have to drop MCOCA charges," said his lawyer Sudeep Pasbola. The trial in the case is yet to begin.
