A judge at the Lautoka High Court in Fiji is deliberating on evidence and jury members ahead of next week's trial of policemen and a military officer charged with rape.
The nine are charged with raping a civilian, Vilikesa Soko, who subsequently died of his injuries sustained in police custody in 2014.
Two of the policemen are also facing a charge of defeating the course of justice for allegedly instructing other police officers to make false statements.
This week the court has held a voir dire hearing to decide on whether some pieces of evidence were correctly obtained.
It has also heard submissions over the make-up of the jury.
That hearing concluded today and the judge is expected to deliver a decision on Friday.
The trial of the nine men is expected to begin next week and to last three weeks.
