Man denies kidnapping girl

Charlie Brebner of Lotofaga has denied allegations from Police that he kidnapped a 10-year-old young girl in the same village last year. 

The alleged incident surfaced in the Supreme Court this week when Mr. Brebner entered a not guilty plea to a charge of kidnapping. 

Through lawyer Arthur Lesa, the 22-year-old from Lotofaga pleaded guilty to a burglary charge against him.

Justice Leiataualesa Daryl Clarke adjourned the matter for hearing on 10 November. 

An assessor trial will sit to determine the kidnapping charge against Mr. Brebner. 

He is remanded on bail until his trial later this year.
