Principal Magistrate Fatima Taeburi was about to arraign Gome on the second charge of being in possession of Indian hemp (marijuana) when she noticed that the charge was not sanction by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
She said both charges needs to be sanctioned.
She said the accused cannot be arraigned because the sanction is improper and therefore adjourned the matter.
The prosecutor was then ordered to sort out the sanctioned and have it signed by the Director of Public Prosecution before Tome will plea to the charges.
Gome is co-accused charged with Silas Penny Apuitau in relation to this alleged incident.
Apuitau is represented by Ben Alasia who is currently in the province.
