He was in court in Suva as part of proceedings and is to reappear on 19 of May.

Mr Lolohea is accused of stabbing his 24-year-old partner in March, causing injuries which led to her death.

Two years ago, he was fined for enlisting, recruiting and deploying persons for overseas employment without proper authorisation.

After the launch of the Iraq war he ran Meridian Services which was instrumental in recruiting Fijians for work in Kuwait and Iraq.
