Warrant of arrest issued against man facing arson charges


THE court has issued a warrant of arrest against a man facing arson charge yesterday.

The accused, Philip Feman, failed to appear in court yesterday for his last interim mention before his trial resumes on April 3 this year.

Mr Feman was charged with one count of arson in regards to an incident which occurred in Isabel in 2016.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge and a trial date was set, he was given privilege to be bailed while waiting for his trial date.

However when the court called his name for mention he failed to turn up and prosecution applied for a warrant of arrest against him.

Principal Magistrate Augustine Aulanga then issued the warrant and made orders for the police officers to try and execute the warrant of arrest as soon as possible as the trial date is next week.

The case is then adjourned to April 3 for trial and also review of the warrant.

Public Prosecutor John Zoze appears for the crown.
