A MAN who allegedly involved in attacking a Renbel chief at the Kingsley Food bar last year will know whether or not he will stand trial in the High Court, tomorrow.
A short form preliminary inquiry was conducted in relation to the accused Frank Fakani yesterday that saw documents tendered to the court.
Principal Magistrate Ricky Iomea said he will read through the documents before making his ruling tomorrow.
He will commit Fakani to stand trial in the High Court if he finds sufficient evidence against him on the charge of attempted murder.
But if there are insufficient evidence, Fakani is likely to be discharged.
Fakani’s co-accused Ben Alami was already committed to stand trial in the High Court following a short form preliminary inquiry conducted on his case recently.
They are both charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident on the morning of 8 November, 2014 at the Kingsley Fast Food bar, Point Cruz.
Poly Tepai was having his meal with another Asian and a local when Alami allegedly came from behind and hacked him with a 60 centimetre-long knife.
Prosecution alleged Tepai flew in from his village into Honiara on that morning and made his way from the airport accompanied by an Asian to Kingsley where he was attacked.
The men then left in a car allegedly driven by Fakani.
Tepai nearly lost his left hand but doctors were able to save his hand and life.
Two other men, owner of the Samlimsam logging company, a Malaysian Pau Kiu Den and another local Buddley Fakani were also charged for the attempted murder but were later discharged due to insufficient evidence against them.
George Gray of Public Solicitor’s Office represents Fakani while Public Prosecutor Florence Joel appeared for the State.
