38 year old Australian, Bassam Tiba, who was arrested in Honiara in October for a 2004 murder in Australia will finally return to Australia this week.

This is so Mr. Tiba could face the murder charges against him in Australia.

This was revealed by the Acting Police Commissioner, Peter Marshall in a Press Conference last week.

According to Mr. Marshall, Mr. Tiba's extradition will depend on the arrival of detectives from Australia.

Peter Marshall acknowledged and appreciated the local Police for capturing Mr. Tiba.
