Saturday, March 08, 2014

A DEFENCE counsel yesterday told the High Court in Suva he would seek court costs for the suffering his client had endured.

The accused who faces one count of rape appeared before Justice Prabaharan Kumaratnam yesterday and State prosecutor Amelia Vavadakua informed the court that they would file a nolle prosequi as the victim was now in a remote area in the Solomon Islands and couldn't be contacted.

Defence lawyer Sunil Kumar told Justice Kumaratnam the State had earlier said they spoke to the complainant however yesterday, they said a different thing before the court.

He was informed by the court to submit his applications in writing.
