Lack of fund delays police investigation


POLICE are yet to complete the investigation on the alleged murder case in Bauro, Makira province.

Prosecution confirmed in court yesterday that investigation into the alleged murder incident, which occurred in 2016, is yet to be complete as there is no fund to allow police investigators to travel to Makira province to complete the investigation.

This is in relation to the case against an accused, Jimmy Baukuhu, who is faced with one count of murder.

Prosecution alleged that Mr Baukuhu and his associates killed the deceased from Bauro on May 24, 2016.

Prosecution said the deceased was dead at a seaside near Kirakira with a rope tied to his neck.

The presiding Magistrate adjourns the case to March 5 to allow further update on the status of the investigation from the prosecution.

Andrew Kelesi of the Office of the Director Public Prosecution appears on behalf of the crown.
