Aki’s lawyers file for bail

Lawyers representing the Chairman of the NCD Suburban Rugby League, Billy Aki are working to get bail for the accused who is being remanded at Bomana.

His lawyers filed an urgent application before lunch today seeking bail, however could not move that application in court as the matter was not listed before a judge.

Aki’s lawyers are now working on getting the matter before a judge to hear it.

He made his first appearance on Thursday before Magistrate John Kaumi at the District Court sitting at Bomana.

From the Western Highlands Province, Aki was arrested early this week and charged for the alleged willful murder of a woman (his wife).

It is alleged he assaulted his wife at the Kone Tigers oval following an argument on Christmas eve.  

This assault left her with serious life injuries that saw her admitted at the Intensive Care unit of the Port Moresby General Hospital.

She later died from her injuries over the weekend.
