RAMSI Officer to be Trialed in Honiara

According to Radio New Zealand, the Samoan RAMSI officer who was driving the vehicle that killed 26 year old Hilda Ilabae in June will now have his case heard in Solomon Islands.

Mr. Gabriel Suri, the Solomon Islands Attorney General, revealed that the Samoan government has confirmed that it will give the jurisdiction to Solomon Islands.

There is now enough evidence to charge the Samoan officer, whose name has not been released.

The Solomon Islands Acting Police Commissioner, Peter Marshall says the investigation into the crash case is now complete.

However, Commissioner Marshall will not be revealing specific details of the possible charges of the RAMSI officer, who is currently held at the RAMSI headquarters at Henderson.

Ms. Hilda Ilabae was hit by the vehicle driven by the Samoan RAMSI officer, while walking home from church with her house mates.
