NEW TRIAL DATE TO BE FIXED FOR TOVOSIA AND VEKE
A new trial date for the Member of Parliament for East Guadalcanal Bradley Tovosia and Guadalcanal Premier Anthony Veke will be fixed soon.
They will reappear at the Magistrate Court on April 6th to set the new date.
Principal Magistrate Fatima Taeburi on their last appearance this month, said she will speak with her superiors to allocate a particular magistrate to hear the trial.
Tovosia and Veke are each facing four counts of abuse of office and seven counts of attempted abuse of office.
They are jointly charged in relation to the allegation in July 2010 when Tovosia was working with the Guadalcanal Provincial Assembly and Veke was the Finance Minister for the province.
