ACCUSED ORDERED TO FIND A LAWYER
The Magistrates Court has ordered a murder accused to find a lawyer to represent him in Court because he is facing a very serious charge.

In Court Thursday last week, Principal Magistrate Shepard Lapo told the young man, he is facing a serious charge and must have a lawyer.
The Magistrate ordered him to put in a request to the Public Solicitor’s office.
The two men were accused of killing a 27 year-old man at the George Wu Company house in China Town, on 1st March between 10pm and 11pm.
According to Police records, they were drinking beer with the deceased in the accused’s room when an argument broke out among them.
The two accused allegedly attacked the deceased, hitting his head on the cargo containers outside the area.
The deceased was not able to speak or walk after the incident.
He was admitted to the National Referral Hospital and died four days later.
The case will be transferred to the Director of Public Prosecutions to deal with.
It is schedule to go before the court again on 18 September.
