Agnes Jimu

Couple to stand trial over police station fire

Agnes Jimu and her husband Charles Andrew Epei are facing charges of arson, stealing and conspiring to defraud the state.

The Waigani Committal Court today ruled it had prima facie or sufficient evidence to put their case to the National Court to stand trial.

Magistrate Mekeo Gauli ordered their committal after they chose to remain silent in relation to their section 96 statement, after he gave his ruling on the sufficiency of evidence.
