Murder case committed to the High Court


PRINCIPAL Magistrate Tearo Beneteti has committed a murder case to the High Court for trial.

This is the case against Christopher Lalo, alleged to have murdered a man last year.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge and the defence lawyer requested for a short form preliminary inquiry to be conducted on the case.

The prosecution then submitted the preliminary inquiry papers to the court and after looking through the document the Magistrate has ruled that prosecution has sufficient evidence to stand trial in the High court.

She then made directions that the accused will be called in the High Court on April 27.
