The High Court in Lautoka has given the state more time to file information and disclosures in the case of an alleged murderer.

This came after a request was made by state prosecutor Joeli Nasa. Justice Sunil Sharma presided over the matter yesterday.

Accused, Alivereti Lesukiyasawa, was alleged to have been heavily intoxicated when he allegedly murdered the late Joseph Johnson on February 19, at Evan Street in Lautoka where the deceased’s body was discovered motionless.

Lesukiyasawa was represented in court by Legal Aid Commission lawyer Nimita Sharma.

Mr Nasa told the court that the state was yet to file the information and disclosures for the case and requested a further 14 days to file the same to which Ms Sharma said the defence had no objection.

Justice Sharma adjourned the matter to February 5 for mention and further remanded Lesukiyasawa.
