Another senior police officer in Solomon Islands has been convicted on charges of demanding and intimidation.

Senior Sergeant Wari Malolo was charged in connection with an incident at the Prime Minister's office in February this year.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Service says he demanded the key to an official vehicle and then drove away.

The prosecution says it plans to pursue other charges, including one of attempted murder, when Malolo appears for sentencing next week.
