Judge, Daniel Liosi, dismissed the charged of stealing with violence, official corruption, obstruction, willful disaffection to other members of the police force and bribery
Mr. Mori was charged along with two police officers for allegedly stealing files of Chuave District Treasury, from a purported police investigation team and obstruction.
The Court found that Mr. Mori was not in the province, during the incident and that there was a lack of evidence.
Speaking after the decision, Mr. Mori said with the end of this chapter, he will go back to performing his duties as MP.
