Wobiro seeks non-custodial sentence

Bailed Western Province Governor Ati Wobiro has sought a non-custodial sentence after been found guilty on charges of missappropriation and conspiracy.
He and 2 others, Dr. Modowa Gumoi and Norman May Carl were charged for misappropriating over K7million belonging to the people of Western Province.

Their lawyers from the Possman Kua Aisi lawyers submitted that that a non-custodial sentence should be given to their clients on grounds the trio never benedited from the funds and that the monies were given to the people.

They also argued that a non-custodial sentence was proper after the accused paid back K1.7million.
Mr. Anthony Kupmain from the Public Prosecutors Office argued that they all serve 50 years imprisonment under the ammended criminal code for offences of misappropriation.
A decision has been reserved for 27 October 2016.
