Jacob appeared at the Central Committal Court this morning for the third time since his arrest on Jan 13.

His 17-year-old co-accused returned to the Juvenile court yesterday however his case hearing could not proceed due to the unavailability of the presiding magistrate.

He will return to the Port Moresby District court next Wednesday. He remains on bail.
