Charge remains

A MAN charged with the attempted murder of a policewoman told the High Court in Suva he was willing to plead guilty to a lesser charge.

Josateki Tabua is alleged to have stabbed Timaima Vatubua, a police officer in Toorak last year.

It is alleged the two were at a party consuming alcohol after the Sukuna Bowl challenge last year.

It is alleged Mr Tabua stabbed Ms Vatubua after an argument.

The charge was read to Mr Tabua and he informed the court that he understood the charge.

Mr Tabua then pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempted murder.

He told the court he was willing to plead guilty if the charge was amended to act with intent to grievous harm.

The State prosecution informed the court the notion to amend the charge to act with intent to cause grievous harm had been deliberated and they would not change the charge.
