An Australian man has been arrested in Solomon Islands over a stabbing murder in Victoria more than four years ago.
The Solomons acting assistant police commissioner Peter Aoraunisaka confirmed the arrest of Bassam Tiba, after he arrived at Honiara airport on a flight from Port Vila in Vanuatu.
In June 2004, Victorian Police discovered the body 30-year-old Rashid Haddara in the back of a car in a Melbourne suburb after receiving complaints the vehicle had been parked with its doors open.
Haddara had been stabbed to death.
Tiba is expected to appear in court today
