Lalauvaki died at the CWM hospital a month later as a result of injuries.

The second prosecution witness, 26-year-old Alifereti Gade maintained that Kelepi Kolinisau had kicked and stomped Josua Lalauvaki at the Totogo Policer station carpark on September 2nd last year.

In cross-examination, Gade said when they brought Lalauvaki, his girlfriend and two other people to the Police station, Kolinisau escorted Lalauvaki’s friend to the charge room.

He said while being escorted, Lalauvaki’s friend punched Kolinisau and he fell to the ground and started bleeding.

Gade said after that both started exchanging punches.

He testified that a senior police officer told Kolinisau not to do anything.

Gade said he then went to the washroom and when he came back he saw Kolinisau kicking and stomping Lalauvaki.

Kolinisau and Tikoenaburevere are represented by Barbara Malimali and Akuila Naco.

The trial continues before High court Judge Justice Vincent Perera.
