TWO MEN SENTENCED TO LIFE IMPRISONMENT FOR MURDER
The High Court has yesterday sentenced two men to spend the rest of their life behind bars for murder.
The two men, Allen Kaipua from Rennell Bellona Province and Gideon Bosa from North Guadalcanal were convicted last week for separate murder cases.

Before they were sentenced, submissions were presented before the Court on the minimum sentences they should serve before eligible for Parole.
