The woman who was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband in the NSW suburb of North Narrabeen Sunday has been identified as a Fiji citizen permanently resident in Australia.

Fijis’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation through the Fiji High Commission in Canberra and Consul General (Sydney) today confirmed to FijiLive of the alleged murder of Adi Cavora Baleimalea Bole Tavuki. Known as Cavora Bole to her close friends, the deceased was educated at Indian College (now known as Jai Narayan) and had just turned 22.

Arrangements are being made to send the body of the deceased to Fiji for a home burial at the request of her family.

According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Penijamini R. T. Lomaloma, the couple's 13-month old child is an Australian citizen and currently in the care of family members, as determined by the NSW Department of Community Services.

“The next of kin in Fiji has been notified of the demise and arrangements are being made with the NSW Coroner's office to have the body repatriated to Fiji at the request of the family of the deceased,” Lomaloma said.

He further said the Fiji High Commission and Consul General(Sydney) will continue to liaise with the NSW Police Department and members of the local Fiji Community in this regard.

The suspect, who is the victim’s husband, is Fiji citizen and in Australia on a temporary visa. According to the manly-daily website, Ratu Serutawake, 29, did not seek bail when he appeared in Hornsby Court yesterday. He will reappear at the Central Local Court on 18 December for mention.
