Dausabea and Ne'e acquitted from April 2006 riot related charges

The High Court of Solomon Islands had acquitted both East and Central Honiara MPs Charles Dausabea and Nelson Ne'e on charges related to the 2006 April riots.

In his judgement today, Puisne Judge Justice David Cameron said that Mr Ne'e is acquitted of the intimidation.

Mr Ne'e was arrested for alleged intimidation with the intention of causing injury to Mrs Anna Nuaiasi during the riot period.

But Justice Cameron ruled that Mr Ne'e is not guilty on the charge of intimidation and is now acquitted and discharged.

In the case of the east Honiara MP, Charles Dausabea, Justice Cameron ruled that the MP is not guilty on the charge of inciting a riot in Parliament house and also not guilty on the charges of inciting a riot to destroy buildings in China town.

He is also not guilty on the charge of intimidation.

Justice Cameron therefore acquitted Mr Dausabea on all charges.
