The Supreme Court in Suva has given time to Legal Aid Commission to file written submissions on behalf of convicted Rakiraki triple murderer and rapist Dip Chand.
The court heard Chand wants the Supreme Court to review its decision on the dismissal of his appeal last year.
The court also heard that the panel of judges will decide if there will be hearing date and his case would be considered if the panel feels there is a need for further argument then it would be listed for hearing.
The court has ordered the state to respond by July 24 and written submissions are to be submitted by Legal Aid director Sunil Sharma in July 10.
Chand, 48 is serving a life sentence with a minimum term of 19 years for the murder of the three Lata sisters in 2005 in Naria Rakiraki.
His earlier appeal was dismissed by the Supreme Court when Sharma had submitted that new evidence could be presented before the court.
The case was heard before Chief Justice Anthony Gates.
