Court to deliver ruling on SFPI
THE Honiara Magistrate court will today deliver its ruling on the short form preliminary inquiry after the prosecution submitted the PI papers yesterday.
Willie Maelafia was charged for an attempted murder charge in relation to an incident that occurred in Honiara on January 7 this year.
He pleaded not guilty of the charge and a SFPI was conducted on the case.
The accused was then further remanded in custody to appear in court today.
The short form preliminary inquiry is for the court to decide whether or not it has sufficient evidence to proceed further to the high court.
Elma Rizzu of the Office of the Director Public Prosecution prosecutes the matter in court while Clifton Ruele of the Public Solicitor’s Office represents the accused.
