APIA: MONDAY 19 JANUARY 2015: More charges could be laid against suspended Savali editor Tupuola Terry Tavita who made his first appearance in court today.

Prosecution asked for an adjournment so they could finalise charges before next week.

Tupuola is charged with attempted rape of a journalism student attached to their news team in November last year.

He was accompanied by his family to court today.

The family of the complainant has written to the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to stop the defendant’s family from approaching them in an attempt to withdraw the charges.

The matter has been adjourned without plea to Monday next week.
