Update: 2:28PM THE office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has sought for more time to respond to an application by the Legal Aid Commission on the release of Apete Kaisau - the man who had allegedly caused the death of the late Fiji Red Cross director John Scott and his partner in 2001.

Legal Aid Director Sunil Sharma had earlier applied that a committal warrant by the President on Kaisau be discharged.

State lawyer and assistant DPP Michael Delaney told judge Justice Salesi Temo that they needed more time to respond to this application.

The case has been adjourned to July 8 to allow time for the State to respond to the application.
