Two male defendants aged 20 and 23-year-old have pleaded guilty for common nuisance before a sitting Magistrate in the Honiara Central Magistrates’ Court on 3 October 2021.
Supervising Provincial Police Commander Honiara City Superintendent Jimson Robo says, “The two defendants were found guilty for the offence and sentenced to fine $400 each. If the defendants have not paid for their fines, they will serve 20 days Imprisonment.”
On 2 October 2021, a police patrol sighted the defendants drinking alcohol and playing loud music at the Choviri area in Honiara. Officers approached them and warned them to stop playing loud music and leave the area.
Police patrol then left the Choviri area heading to Honiara City Council. At the Honiara City Council roundabout, officers receive a phone call from Choviri residence that the same group of boys played loud music again and causing disturbances.
PPC Robo says, “Police returned to the Choviri area and arrested the defendants and placed them in a cell at the Central Police Station Watch House. Both defendants were charged and appeared in Court.”
“I would like to thank the officers for the successful arrests of these youths. I would also like to thank investigators for their hard work to have these defendants before the Court,” says PPC Robo.
