During the proceedings, his lawyer, Taulapapa Brenda Heather-Latu, told the Court that to date, they have yet to receive anything from the Prosecution about the charges.

The Prosecutor, Lupematasila Iliganoa Atoa, of the Attorney General’s Office, asked the Court for an adjournment. 

“We are currently in a consultation with the Police on this matter and this consultation will determine how we will proceed,” said Lupematasila. 

Taulapapa also appealed to the Court to discontinue the bail condition for her client, where he has to sign in at the Police Station weekly. 

The request was granted by Judge Fepuleai who also adjourned the matter until 29 January 2019.
