Alleged assasination plot case against Australian Bill Johnson dropped by Solomons prosecutor
In January, 61-year-old Australian expatriate Bill Johnson was charged with conspiring with four others to murder Solomon Islands' Prime Minister Manessah Sogavare.
This morning in Honiara, Solomons' Director of Public Prosecutions Ronald Talasasa told the Magistrates Court the charges were being dismissed as the evidence given by two of the investigating officers at the time of the arrest did not match the statements they later made in court.
Mr Talasasa also told the court the Royal Solomons Police professional standards unit will investigate why Mr Johnson was charged in the first place.
