Testimony from Frysna Rimoni, the victim in the attempted murder trial who was allegedly shot in the face by Peter Tulaga, spanned approximately four hours last Wednesday, taking up most of the time on day two of Tulaga's trial in the Supreme Court.
Rimoni provided her evidence long distance from New Zealand via video link in the absence of the media and members of the public who were ordered to leave the courtroom for that part of the trial.

Gory details from the police search in the bedroom where Ms. Frysna Rimoni was allegedly shot in the face, emerged Thursday when officers testified in the attempted murder trial of Peter Tulaga.
Pieces of human flesh, teeth, bone fragments, blood-stained sheets, curtains and clothing were found during a three-day investigation at the crime scene, a home in Vailoa belonging to Tulaga's mother.
Not again! Are they really that helpless to do anything about it?
These protesting remarks would probably sum up the general public reaction to the unpleasant surprise of another prisoner who jumped the prison fence this week.
What makes it all the more unbelievable is that the bolter is a 59-year-old murder and drug convict.
How his aging body can hold up to the physical pounding of going on the run and being hotly pursed is of interest.
