The High Court in Suva will recall the case against Pita Driti on May 2 to check on disclosures.

Driti appeared before Justice Paul Madigan this morning represented by Filimoni Vosarogo.

The Director of Public Prosecutions was represented by Mosese Korovou.

The High Court this morning set the dates for mention next month, pre trial conference on November 2, with trial expected to begin from November 15 and end on November 23.

In an earlier court sitting in March this year, the High Court had ordered the state to provide Driti with military council meeting minutes.

His lawyer said they had been waiting on the State to provide outstanding disclosures for more than a year.

Vosarogo said the disclosures included caution interviews and minutes of the military council meetings. The documents, he said, pertained to the fairness of the trial.

Driti has pleaded not guilty to a charge of seditious offence and a second charge of inciting to mutiny.

His bail was extended.
