Solomon Islands court remands woman charged with homosexual act

4:01 pm on 12 March 2004

The Solomon Islands Magistrates Court has remanded a woman who has been charged with homosexual activity.

The accused was remanded in police custody for the third time because the alleged victim failed to appear in court again.

The court heard from the victim's lawyer that her family was not happy with the crowds that gathered outside the court house to see the parties involved in the case.

The woman charged is to reappear on March 24th.
