A woman alleged of assaulting another woman on January 18 this year has pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault causing actual bodily harm yesterday.
Rachel Sam was arraigned in the Honiara Magistrate Court before Principal Magistrate Ricky Iomea.
She appeared in person as she is yet to secure any legal representation.
She told court that she went to the Public Solicitor’s Office five times for a lawyer to assist her but they told her they were busy.
Police alleged Rachel assaulted another woman in Honiara and the matter was reported and she was charged for the offence.
Magistrate Iomea then adjourned the case to October 30 and also made direction for the woman to secure a lawyer to assist her on the PTC since she entered a not guilty plea.
Police Prosecution Service prosecutes the case in court.
