HK lawyer for seditious case

THE DPP Office will recruit a Hong Kong counsel to help prosecute five men charged with a seditious offence.

Jagath Karunaratne, Mosese Bulitavo, Eroni Takape, Usaia Koroi and Waisale Daganayasi allegedly sprayed anti-government graffiti in various locations.

DPP lawyer Lisiate Fotofili told the court he was not able to take a hearing date because the office of the DPP was seeking the assistance of a Hong Kong lawyer. Mr Fotofili said he would need to confer with the DPP who was expected back in office next week.

He also informed the court most of the disclosure had been provided except for mobile phone records from Vodafone.
