Man appears in court for assaulting pregnant woman


A MAN facing a charge of assault causing injuries to a pregnant woman in Port Moresby in March appeared in the Bomana National Court last week.
Justice Panuel Mogish adjourned the case of Samson Dupai from Nebilyer in Western Highlands to November 7 for mention.
Police allege that on March 22, Dupai attacked Rachel Yamba, using a piece of timber to hit her on the head at the Tokarara market in the National Capital District.
Dupai was committed to trial by the Waigani Committal Court on September 20.
Dupai’s lawyer Fredrick Lunge told the court that Dupai would likely plead guilty plea.
