THE State prosecution will rely on admission in the caution interview of a bus driver to prove a count of manslaughter he's charged with.
Salesh Kumar allegedly caused the death of a school boy in Navua. He is alleged to have kept on driving as the boy was getting off the bus.
Mr Kumar has denied the charge.
Yesterday, the State prosecution told the court there was an alleged confession in the caution interview on which it would rely on to prove its case.
The court was told the prosecution would also rely on evidence of other passengers who were in the bus.
The court was also informed the prosecution would produce 10 witnesses and that the case would take about a week.
Defence counsel Tirath Sharma didn't object to a one-week trial, saying the defence would produce four witnesses.
The trial has been set for August 31 next year as court dates have been taken up. Mr Kumar's bail was extended.
