THE file outlining the investigation carried out into the alleged murder of 14-year-old Nabouciwa Village girl Sereima Berwick Degei is with the director of Criminal Investigations Department.

This was confirmed by Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro who said the file was still under review and was being kept by the director CID before it would be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecution's Office for advice.

The young girl is alleged to have been murdered after Nausori Magistrate Charles Ratakele ruled out suicide as the initial cause of death.

Mr Ratakele said while delivering his verdict after the inquest that the DPP and Attorney-General's Chamber would decide whether to lay murder charges against the four men who had been named during the inquest.

Degei was found hanging from a tree beside her house in Nabouciwa Village on September 7, 2007.

Her relatives claim the young girl was raped before she was murdered.
