Duo on murder charge further remanded

TWO men charged with one count of murder have been further remanded in custody.

Apisai Lomani Junior and Leone Naisake are alleged to have murdered a 36-year-old man on December 26, 2018, in Kadavu.

Defence lawyer Babara Malimali informed High Court judge Justice Daniel Goundar that the matter should not be transferred to Justice Salesi Temo as Lomani Junior’s wife is allegedly related to Justice Temo.

Justice Goundar said the file would be kept with him until Justice Temo returned from leave.

The case has been adjourned to February 26.
