Suva businesswoman Mere Samisoni’s lawyer, Tobia Ravuniva, has requested for a short mention date for voir-dire.

This is after the Director of the Office of Public Prosecution (DPP) filed its submission into the case of Samisoni and Apete Vereti, Mataiasi Ragigia and Semisi Lasike who face a charge of urging political violence.

The four appeared in the Suva High Court today before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili to fix possible voir dire date.

DPP earlier this week filed its submission to appeal a decision by Magistrate Ratuvili on Samisoni’s bail variation.

Samisoni’s bail has been extended to October 26 on the day the case will be heard again.
