Ms Belapitu said the matter is also another new matter just forwarded to the office of the Director Public Prosecution by the Police and the DPP’s office is yet to allocate a prosecutor to be in carriage of the case.

She also said the investigations already completed and once the accused has a lawyer prosecution will provide disclosures in regards to the case.

Principal Magistrate Jim Seuika then asked the accused whether he has already secured any lawyer or not; the accused then said that no lawyer has ever visited him while in prison.
