    THE case against the former Guadalcanal province premier Stephen Panga has again adjourned to today for ruling.

    Panga’s case was adjourned from yesterday to today for the presiding Magistrate Jim Seuika to deliver his ruling on the application made by the prosecution.

    The case was announced for trial but there were issues which needed to be sorted out before the trial proceeded.

    Panga was charged with one count of abuse of office in relation to an incident which occurred when he was a premier.

    Police alleged that Panga allegedly misappropriated the sum of around $10,000 of money received as part of his duties.

    It was alleged that he received the money as a false rate payments from a local member of the community.

    Police recently said that Panga’s case was a historical case as it happened way back when he was the Premier of Guadalcanal Province.

    Public Prosecutor Rajah Abe is appearing for the crown.
