The case of the Malaysian man accused of stealing more than $100,000 from his employer has been adjourned to allow his lawyer to have a conference with him.
The conference is in relation to the accused Alex Lau Ung Sin’s plea.
Sin had already previously pleaded guilty to the charge of larceny by servant while he was in custody.
He however changed his plea to a not guilty one and then sought a bail application that was granted by the court.
His lawyer Allan Tinoni of Public Solicitor’s Office yesterday told the court that he had looked at the evidence of the case and needs more time to conference his client regarding his plea.
A 14-day adjournment was sought for this purpose.
Public Prosecutor Bradley Dalipanda did not object to the adjournment and the matter was therefore adjourned to August 6.
Sin was working with the Victory Trading Limited, in Honiara as a sales person when he allegedly stole the company’s money.
Police alleged that he stole more than $100, 000 on unknown dates between 1 November 2014 and 20 April 2014.
