THE case of a man alleged of causing death to another man in 2011 for dangerous driving has adjourned to March 26 for the presiding magistrate to hear the case.

Yesterday the case was mentioned before Principal Magistrate Jim Seuika, and he was told that the case was a part-heard matter before another magistrate.

Seuika then adjourned the case so that the presiding can hear the case on the next occasion.

Robert Pepeo was charged by police in relation to the incident which occurred at the Kukum highway opposite the Didao refuel station.

Police alleged that the accused was driving in the westerly direction on August 2, 2011 at a very high speed. The victim, which is the deceased on the matter, was driving from Vura road coming down.

At the Kukum hot-bread junction due to very high speed the accused could not control his brake and collided with the victim’s vehicle.

As a result of the collision the deceased sustained serious injuries and was later pronounced dead at the National Referral Hospital.

Public Prosecutor Patrick Rajah Abe appears for the crown on the case while Clifton Ruele represents the accused in court.
