Nine serious crime incidents filed with the country’s high court in March involved accused and victim relations out of a total of 33 people charged.

Among those charged were a 39-year-old man for the death of his 38-year-old wife, assault charges against a 50-year-old man for harming his 40-year-old partner, and a 25-year-old man charged with assaulting his 2-year-old son. 

There were cases involving assault on stepfamily members and incidents of attempted grievous harm using boiling water, mop handles, and knives. 

There was one incident where a 64-year-old woman was charged with an act with intent to cause grievous harm to her 64-year-old neighbour. The accused allegedly struck the victim twice on the chest and the shoulder with a kitchen knife.

There were two separate incidents of aggravated robbery whereby taxi drivers were robbed by their passengers. In one incident, a 21-year-old man and a 23-year-old man allegedly robbed a 31-year-old taxi driver of his taxi, mobile phone and $200 cash. In another incident, a 28-year-old man was charged with aggravated robbery. The accused allegedly robbed a 32-year-old taxi driver of his taxi and $170 cash. The accused was also charged with the breach of his suspended sentence for a similar offence.

A 48-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were charged with an attempted unlawful exportation of illicit drugs. The de facto partners were allegedly involved in the attempted exportation of 12.33 kilograms of cocaine.

Two cases were withdrawn due to insufficient evidence.
