Sufficient evidence

Mere Naleba
Saturday, March 01, 2014

ACTING DPP Michael Delaney yesterday told the court the prosecution had sufficient evidence against a man accused of causing the death of his then two-year-old daughter.

Mr Delaney appeared before High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo and told the court the particulars of the offence were sufficient and that accused Vilikesa Rinavuaka had offended.

Mr Rinavuaka's lawyer, Nepote Vere, told the court his client was not present in court as he was still admitted in hospital following surgery.

Mr Vere told the court he would file an application for a trial within a trial after arguing that the police had unlawfully taken the vehicle that Mr Rinavuaka was driving when it allegedly ran over his daughter.

Justice Temo told Mr Vere he was wasting the court's time because he had one and a half years to prepare the applications.

Justice Temo ordered that the accused be present in court on April 4 for a trial date to be set.
