EII Director Facing Assault Charges In Court Solomon Islands, December 19, 12

Director of Earth Island Institute (EII) in the Pacific, Lawrence Makili will be entering his plea on an assault causing actual bodily harm charge next month.

Makili was accused of assaulting his partner on June 8, this year in his vehicle following an argument between them.

Police alleged he grabbed her hair while on their way home and when they arrived home still in their vehicle, he grabbed her neck choking her.

The victim was alleged to have been unconscious during the struggle to free herself but managed to free herself later.

Makili appeared yesterday with a lawyer from the Public Solicitor’s office who sought disclosures from the prosecution.

Magistrate Esther Lelapitu adjourned the matter to January 14, next year for plea.

Disclosures were ordered to be provided before that date.
