THE Suva Magistrate's Court has given the Director of Public Prosecutions seven days to respond to a voir dire application by one of four people charged with urging political violence.

Samanunu Vaniqi, the lawyer of Suva businesswoman Dr Mere Samisoni, applied for further information to be provided in the disclosures regarding her client.

Dr Samisoni is jointly charged with Apete Vereti, Semisi Lasike and the late Mataiasi Ragigia. They appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili yesterday except for Ragigia who passed away after a short illness last month.

Magistrate Ratuvili gave DPP lawyer, Ilisapeci Whippy seven days to respond to the application.

The case has been adjourned to November 26.
