Charges remain for accused


Prosecution has not changed its charges against an accused, Rodney Tatahu, court was told yesterday.

Public Prosecutor John Zoze told the court that from instruction obtained charges against the accused will be maintained.

The court was told that investigation into the case has been completed and already served to the defence lawyer.

Meanwhile a lawyer from the Public Solicitor’s Office who represents the accused told the court that since the prosecution will maintain the charge he needs time to consult his client on the charges before a plea could be entered on both charges.

The defence then sought a week’s adjournment on the case.

The case is then adjourned for April 17 for the accused to take his plea on the charges against him.
