Pre-trial conference on immigration offences by a 19 year old


THE Pre-trial conference into the case against a 19 year-old young man charged with immigration offences will be made today in the Honiara Magistrate Court.

The PTC was supposed to have made on the previous occasion but due to the defence counsel’s not prepared for the PTC, the case has adjourned. The PTC will be conducted today.

This is the case of Paul Anga who was charged for unlawful non-citizen and misleading immigration officer.

On previous appearances the defence said the accused is of Solomon Island citizen.

But the prosecution said that there are no documents to identify that the accused is a Solomon islander as there was no birth certificate or other documents to support that he is a Solomon Islander.

The accused Mr Anga is charged under the Immigration Act 2012 early this year.
