THREE people alleged to have stoned the Guadalcanal Premier’s residence at Lengakiki on January 13, 2022 will come back to court on March 17, 2022.

This is for the defendants to secure legal representation.

The matter was mentioned in court yesterday through zoom and the defendants were not able to attend due to the Magistrate Court restricting people from entering the premises because of the covid-19 situation.

This is the case of Jacklyn Natei, Feffson Natei and Francis Ramo who are facing count of common nuisance.

Prosecution said the defendants were frustrated with a man named Lavery Patrick who was residing with the Premier, Francis Sade, claiming that Mr Lavery had used abusive words on them.

The defendants attended to the Premier’s resident and threw rocks at his residence, causing nuisance/disturbance as they shouted angrily at the residents while throwing stones.

 The matter was reported to police and the defendants were arrested.  

All three were charged for common Nuisance.

Principal Magistrate Leonard Chite told the prosecution to summon the defendants so that they appear on the next appearance.

Magistrate Chite also said he will seek permission from the Chief Magistrate, if possible, all matters can be heard in one of the court rooms.
