Through his lawyer Leiataualesa Komisi Koria, he sought permission to travel to Vanuatu where he claims to have a business.

District Court Judge Talasa Atoa Sa'aga told the accused that his lawyer would have to lodge a written application with the Court to be allowed to leave the country.

The prosecution has been told to return property not being used as evidence to Mr Veverita who is out on bail awaiting his court case.

The matter has now been adjourned until November 15.
