Former Solomons militant skips bail

11:37 am on 4 December 2002

In Solomon Islands, Joseph Sangu, the younger brother of renegade Harold Keke, has disappeared after being released on police bail last week.

Keke, who is the leader of the Guadalcanal Liberation Front militant group, has been the focus of a police hunt on the weather coast for nearly two months.

Joseph Sangu was taken into custody last week but released on Friday, on condition he report to police headquarters in Honiara on Monday.

CID say he failed to do so.
