THE Director of Public Prosecutions has finally served full disclosures on three people charged with urging political violence.

Suva businesswoman Dr Mere Samisoni, Apete Vereti and Semisi Lasike appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili.

Dr Samisoni's lawyer, Tupou Draunidalo, made an application for a hearing between April and June and the DPP was given 21 days to respond.

The case has been adjourned to March 14.

Dr Samisoni is jointly charged with Vereti, Lasike and Mataiasi Ragigia who passed away after a short illness last year.

The three have denied urging political violence. They allegedly urged one Waisea Kaloumaira to burn the city of Suva in December, 2011.
