The Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde, has said that the State will consider an appeal against the decision of the Magistrates’ Court to discharge Sixtus Torokana on a charge of disobedience of lawful order.

The Magistrates’ Court discharged Sixtus Torokana on May 26th on the grounds that the particulars of the offence were incorrect and there were conflicting decisions by the High Court which needed to be resolved by the Court of Appeal.

Pryde said: “It would appear that the Magistrate may have made an error of law and the State will now review the decision before deciding on whether to appeal.”

Torokana was arrested for breaching curfew restrictions and granted a bail bond of 500 dollars.
