Medical report on White River incident outstanding


THE court has again been told on Wednesday that the medical report into the case against Teururu Maraki is yet to be obtained from the Doctor.

Public Prosecutor John Zoze informed the court that investigators have been following up with the doctor but was unsuccessful.

This is in relation to the attempted murder incident which occurred at White River.

On the previous occasion prosecution said that all other documents in relation to the charge were already obtained but the only outstanding document is the medical report of the victim.

Principal Magistrate Leonard Chite also asked the accused whether he has a lawyer to represent him but the accused said that he has no lawyer, saying requests have been made several times but with no response from the Public Solicitor’s Office.

Meanwhile a lawyer from the Public Solicitor’s Daniel Kwalai said his office is facing a shortage of lawyers.

Mr Kwalai said he will follow up with his superior in regards to the case.

Magistrate Chite then adjourned the case to June 13 for allocation of lawyer and completion of investigation.

Office of the Director Public Prosecution appears for the crown.
