Investigation pending on sexual case


THE court was told yesterday that investigation into the case against a man charged for three counts of sexual offence and one count of intimidation is still pending.

Public Prosecutor Dalcy Belapitu, under instruction from colleague in carriage of the case, said police investigators are yet to complete the investigation – this is in regards to the photographs and the sketch place of the crime scene.

Ms Belapitu said once all required documents are collected they will serve it to the defence before the accused can enter his plea on the charges against him.

Meanwhile the accused also told the court that he is yet to secure any lawyer to assist him with his cases.

Principal Magistrate Jim Seuika then adjourned the case to May 10 to allow prosecution time to gather all outstanding evidence and also for the accused to secure a lawyer to represent him in court.
