Yesterday defence lawyers Jenny Namo and Clifton Ruele confirmed in court their availability for the trial.

This is for the defence lawyers to continue with their case.

Presiding Principal Magistrate Jim Seuika after setting the trial adjourns the case to March 27 for an interim mention.

This is the case against Frank Firimolea and his other co-acused.

Frank Firimolea, Fred Taebo Dara, and Lawrence Liliva and a 15-year-old juvenile, are facing various charges in relation to the armed robbery on different dates in May and June 2015.

Prosecution alleged that during those months, there were a number of armed robbery and break-ins cases reported to police from the Nggosi area, west Honiara; to Ranadi, east Honiara.

The incidents involved a group of armed masked men between the ages of 15 to 30.

It was alleged this group invaded homes of expatriates, businesses people, as well as those of Solomon Islanders and removed valuable properties and money.

A number of home owners sustained injuries during the robbery incidents and some have to be flown overseas for medical treatment.
