Closing submission on man facing attempted murder adjourns


THE closing submission into the case of a man charged with one count of attempted murder will be made in the next 14 days.

The case was adjourned yesterday because the prosecution responsible had been busy with another case in the High Court.

Defence Lawyer Rodgers Tovosia having heard that prosecution has sought to adjourn the case, made no objection and the court granted adjournment on the case for the next 14 days.

This is the case against John Kebol who was charged in relation to an incident which occurred in Sukiki village, Weathercoast of Guadalcanal.
