3 men in custody over grievous harm charge

THREE suspects are remanded at the Correctional Services facility in Gizo since February 27, 2018 for alleged grievous harm during an alleged incident at Munda on February 23.

The three men will re-appear in the Gizo Magistrates Court after 14 days.

On February 26, Police in Munda arrested and charged the three men for abduction and assaulting and causing grievous harm to a 31-year-old man on the evening of February 23 at Pagupau Island in the Saekile Passage, Roviana Lagoon.

“I want to appeal to the relatives of the victim in this case, to refrain from taking the law into their own hands and listen to the police who advised them to allow the matter to be investigated and dealt with by the courts,” says Provincial Police Commander, Western Province, Chief Superintendent Mathias Lenialu.

“I want to thank members of the community for helping police with information so far and I want to appeal to anyone who might still have more information about the incident which might assist the police in its investigation, to speak with the police in Munda or contact them on telephone 62189.”
