Tunidau: Client 'tricked'

Repeka Nasiko
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

"NO one can rebut or negate the evidence given by Ratu Epeli (Niudamu) in court but Mereoni Kirwin, who is not here today. There is one missing player, a major actor in this trial and that is Mereoni."

This was the comment made by Ratu Epeli's defence lawyer, Kevueli Tunidau, in his closing statement before five assessors in the trial of 16 people from Ra charged with sedition.

He said Ms Kirwin was the author of the Uluda Declaration, the Ra Sovereign Christian State Declaration and the petition to the International Court of Justice.

He said the self-proclaimed lawyer had given his client only two of the 25-page Uluda Declaration to sign.
