A WOMAN who is currently serving a jail term is back in court facing outstanding false pretence charges.
Mary Jane Aru, 45 of Marau, East Guadalcanal is accused of obtaining $2,000 cash and a shell money (traditional money) worth more than $1,000 under false pretence from another woman.
She was supposed to take her plea yesterday but particulars of the charge need to be amended.
Principal Magistrate Sheppard Lapo therefore adjourned the matter to today to allow prosecution to make the amendments.
Earlier in court Police Prosecutor John Palmer said the two false pretence charges should have been dealt with the matters that she is now serving an imprisonment term for.
However, that was not done as the prosecution warrant department has overlooked those outstanding matters.
The outstanding matters were in relation to the allegation on January 25, last year where she lied to a woman and obtained the money and shell money from her.
Aru is currently serving a six month imprisonment term after she was convicted for six counts of false pretence.
Public Solicitor Lawyer Jenny Namo is representing Aru.
