Kokoda suspects still to appear in court

Two suspects who were arrested and flown into Port Moresby 10 days ago for their alleged involvement in the Kokoda track attack and rape are yet to appear in court.

 The matter is to go before the Central Province Committal court.

The two suspects were expected in court today at Bomana for the Central Province Committal court hearing of custody cases however that did not happen.

The two men,  Poksi Jacob, 19 from Efogi and  the other (name withheld) 17 from Maraba were flown into Port Moresby on Jan 15 and charged last Wednesday (Jan 20).

The duo have been charged with rape or sexual penetration, abduction, armed robbery and wounding.

They remain in custody awaiting their first appearance in court.
