A ruling on the review application submitted in the High Court in Suva by lawyer Iqbal Khan on be­half of his client Samuela Waqa has been deferred to May.

Waqa appeared before Justice Thushara Rajasinghe on Wednesday.

However, he was informed that the ruling was not ready.

Waqa was allegedly found with 22 nine millimetre live ammunition in his Domain home on March 7, 2018.

The 55-year-old accused is charged with one count of pos­session of arms and ammunition without a licence.

On the day of the alleged incident a Police operation team raided Waqa’s home and found the ammunition inside a purple Adidas bag which was hanging on a wall.

Thirteen of the ammunition were allegedly packed inside an empty BH10 cigarette packet and nine were wrapped in­side a blue plastic.Waqa’s case has been adjourned to May 21, 2018, for ruling to be heard. The accused is out on bail.
