Alleged shooter appears in court

THE man who allegedly wounded a Melanesian Brother (Tasiu) late last year will reappear in court on April 6, 2018.

He was arrested and charged for allegedly wounding following an incident on August 20, 2017 where he injured a Tasiu with an arrow on the victim’s right rib.

“The defendant appeared in court on 9 March 2018 and the matter was adjourned to 6 April 2018 because the accused had no lawyer to represent him in court,” says Provincial Police Commander Makira Ulawa Province, Superintendent Peter Sitai.

“I want to thank the elders of Rea Camp for their understanding and support in assisting the young defendant to attend to his court dates. Law and order is every ones’ business and I appeal to everyone let’s all work together to address crime in our society.”
