Case details

STATE lawyers have been given two weeks to provide disclosures in a case relating to three men facing arson and property damage charges.

The High Court in Lautoka heard that Alena Dela, Sitiveni Waqa and Jope Koro have been in remand for three months because of this delay.

Justice Sitambarampillai Thurairajah said the DPP's office would be given the final two-week period to file their disclosures.

The three accused men had strongly objected to the prosecution's submissions that they be given more time. The case has been adjourned to May 7.

Bail review

THE High Court in Lautoka will be reviewing a bail condition previously handed to a man charged with allegedly misappropriating more than $16,000 of State funds.

Justice Sitambarampillai Thurairajah yesterday decided that Mohammed Irshad's bail conditions were not adequate, given the serious charges that he was facing.

Mr Irshad's case will be recalled on April 27 where he will be given new bail conditions. In the meantime, Mr Irshad has been remanded in custody.

Theft charge

THE seven police officers accused of stealing from a supermarket in Ba appeared at the Ba Magistrates Court charged with theft.

The seven officers were represented by Iqbal Khan and Kitione Vuataki. The case was called for mention following its first call at the Lautoka Magistrates Court.

The case has been adjourned to May 16.
