Minister for Fisheries to Face Charges Soon

The Solomon Islands Member of Parliament for North Malaita and Fisheries Minister, Jimmy Lusibaea, will appear before the High Court later this year for offences he allegedly committed in 2002.

The SIBC reports Jimmy Lusibaea will face charges of attempted murder with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, assault on a police officer and discharging firearm in a public place.

The charges relate to an incident which took place in September 2002.

High Court Registrar, Gavin Withers, confirmed that the case has been listed for a hearing commencing on November 15th.

Mr Withers says another person will also be facing charges which form part of the same case file.

The registrar says he is not prepared to disclose the identity of the victims in the case.
