SENTENCE on the case against man guilty of counts of simple larceny and damage to property will be delivered today at the Honiara Magistrate Court.

The case was called yesterday in court for sentencing, but since prosecution and the accused were yet to produce written submissions on sentencing and mitigation, the case was adjourned.

Police Prosecutor John Palmer Teula told the court that oral submissions have already been made on the previous appearance and thus the prosecution relies on that submission.

This is the case against John Billy Aru. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was convicted on the previous occasion.

He is currently remanded in custody awaiting his sentencing.

The accused appeared for himself in court.

Principal Magistrate Jim Seuika presides over the case.
