THE mastermind behind the robbery of $50,000 worth of the new $100 bill will be further remanded in Korovou Prison.

Viliame Cama, a security officer, appeared in court yesterday morning before Magistrate Yohan Liyange.

He is charged with one count of theft.

In court yesterday state lawyer Nancy Tikoisuva advised the court that she was still in the process of reviewing Mr Cama's charges of theft.

She asked that the case be adjourned to today for the accused to make a bail application.

Magistrate Liyange then ordered Mr Cama to provide a formal bail application in court this morning.

The bail application and plea will be decided when Mr Cama appears with the other five people charged with receiving stolen property and giving false information.

Mr Cama had earlier appeared on Monday but Ms Tikoisuva had asked the court to issue an order for Mr Cama to be further remanded in police custody because he was helping the police recover some of the funds.

Mr Cama is alleged to be the prime suspect in the case.

He is remanded in Korovou Prison while the other five are in police custody.
