The court will be handing down its ruling on a voir dire (trial within a trial) hearing conducted on the case of a public officer accused of stealing more than $ 28, 000 from the Solomon Islands Government on August 2.
This was after it was confirmed in court that submissions from both the prosecution and the defence have been filed to the court.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Shepherd Lapo said he received the closing submissions and would need time to go through those submissions.
He said after considering the submissions, he would then hand down his ruling.
A voir dire has been conducted on the case against Enith Fairamoa last month.
She challenged her record of interview (ROI) with police which she based her claim on the issue of unfairness during the ROI.
Prosecution had also informed the court earlier before the voir dire took place that two of their key witnesses who were top officers have decided not to give evidence in the main trial.
The trial proper will however proceed despite the decision of these two witnesses.
Ms Fairamoa is facing a charge of larceny & embezzlement.
Police alleged she stole more than $28, 000 when she was working as a Pay Roll Officer in the Ministry of Finance and Treasury.
Private Lawyer Ben Etomea represents Fairamoa while Police Prosecutor John Palmer is prosecuting.
