Woman tells of marriage plan

By SHALVEEN CHAND
Saturday, February 22, 2014

A YOUNG woman intends to marry the man she is accused of stabbing, the High Court in Suva was told on Thursday.

Unaisi Lalakai was charged with attempted murder, however, the State prosecution informed the court the charge had been amended to act with intent to cause grievous harm.

The day started with Ms Lalakai appearing without her lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma in the morning, but when the case was called in the afternoon, Ms Lalakai was missing.

The matter was stood down again but not before Mr Vakaloloma told the court he had no idea what was his position because he'd received no instructions from his client.

When the case was called for the third time, Ms Lalakai appeared unrepresented again, but this time she told the court she intended to marry the man she had stabbed.

Ms Lalakai said the confrontation between her and the victim arose during a physical dispute. But neither reported the matter. Instead it was reported by the doctor who had examined her fiancé.

The case will be called again next week.
