Two Tongan police officers charged with manslaughter with an alternative count of grievous bodily harm went on trial last week at the Supreme Court in Nukuʻalofa after ʻĪnoke Pepa, 20, of Vainī died in November 2012.
The Director of Public Prosecutions ‘Aminiasi Kefu believes Pepa died from head injuries after he was allegedly assaulted by Police Officers Samisoni Tāufa, 32, and Sōsefo Masalu, 27.
The trial before Mr Justice Cato continues this week.
