False pretence case quashed

The National,Thursday June 16th, 2016

A FALSE pretence case involving more than K30,000 was struck out by the Waigani committal court for lack of evidence provided by police prosecution.
Magistrate Cosmas Bidar struck out the charge against Alois Kimo, who was alleged to have obtained more than K30,000 from Jamie Maxtone Graham
Bidar explained that the case was dismissed, “Because of no latest information on the progress of the investigation, no instructions from the arresting officer, taking into account that three months is sufficient to lay files before the court since it is a secondary offence.”
Bidar said the accused first appeared before the court on Feb 11 and the second mention was on Feb 17.
He ordered that the accused be refunded his K1000 bail.
