The case of Noah Taio, who faces charges for breaching probation and theft, has been adjourned to next month.

This is to allow time for a medical report to be arranged and to update the court of his treatment in New Zealand.

Taio was granted bail and allowed to travel to New Zealand in September last year for a psychiatric assessment after recommendations from the mental health department in Rarotonga.

Taio has also been charged with unlawful taking and contempt of court.

Defence lawyer Wilkie Rasmussen told Justice of the Peace John Whitta that Taio was still in New Zealand undergoing treatment.

JP Whitta said it was unclear when Taio would return due to travel conditions.

However, he said he would like an update on his treatment.

The matter has been adjourned to October 22.
