Former school teacher, Kishore Kumar has told the court that the prosecution should stick to the charges against him and not to go into emotional ways as the court works on evidence and facts.

Kumar is charged with allegedly making false porn video claims on his facebook page, Kishore Kumar Publications against Qereqeretabua in 2020.

He says the media is posting on emotional things and the people outside are swearing at him.

Kumar who is representing himself says after thoroughly reading the disclosures and based on the information he received he can see that there is some hidden agenda.

He says therefore at times he will be asking the media not be present however he will talk to the DPP lawyers first and if they agree with him, then the media can stay but if they try to personalise it, then the media cannot be present.

He says he believes in media freedom but not on a personalised agenda.

Magistrate Seini Puamau says she will make a decision on whether the media is to be present or not but what Kumar can do is if he wants to make an application for the removal of the media, then he can do so.

Meanwhile, a Vodafone Liaison Officer who was produced as a prosecution witness told the court that he was given a mobile number by police to provide the ownership details and the incoming and outgoing calls.

He says the ownership details of the number were that it was registered under the name Kishore Kumar.

The witness says the ID used to register the sim card was a voter ID.
