Vanuatu funeral for New Zealander killed last week

1:48 pm on 5 January 2012

In Vanuatu, the funeral service for a New Zealand businessman who was killed in a suspected land dispute will be held tomorrow.

Dick Eade had lived in Vanuatu for 35 years and was a prominent vegetable grower.

His widow is reported to have agreed for her husband's body to be buried in Port Vila as a tribute for his great love for the country and people.

A well-known nurse in the public health system, Philip Tanaki, will appear in court on January the 9th charged with the intentional homicide of Mr Eade.
