A 33-year-old man charged in relation to the death of his older brother during a drinking party last Thursday was given approval to attend his brother’s funeral tomorrow under Police security.

Sakiusa Saukuru, who is charged with one count of murder, appeared before Magistrate Neel Rupasinghe at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

It is alleged that the accused and his brother, Eremasi, were drinking at their family house at Lakeba Street in Samabula early last Thursday morning when an argument broke out resulting in a fight.

Magistrate Rupasinghe gave the approval after assurance from the accused’s wife that there wasn’t any tension among the family following the death of the accused’s older brother.

Police Prosecutor yesterday confirmed that the full disclosures have been served and an application has been made to transfer the case to the High Court because of its seriousness.

The case has been adjourned to Thursday for hearing.
