A 10-year-old boy and a 37-year-old man have been charged in relation to the shooting incident last month that led to the killing of a 6-year-old boy in Nadi.
Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde, has filed the manslaughter charges for the 37 year old man as Failure to properly secure arms and ammunition and, Manslaughter arising from a breach of duty.
The charge filed against the 10 year old is Manslaughter.
Pryde said the decision to charge the 10-year old was not an easy one.
The DPP’s office did not object to a bail application and a name suppression order for the boy has been granted by the court.
The matter will next be called for mention on the 25th of this month to decide whether the matter should be transferred to the High Court.
