Man pleads guilty

Mere Naleba
Saturday, January 12, 2013

A DECISION to buy electronic items from a neighbour landed a man in court.

Abdul Jasmid of Nabua yesterday appeared before Suva Magistrate Sufia Hamza for one count of receiving stolen property.

Mr Jasmid pleaded guilty to the charge and also admitted the facts.

The court heard that on November 29 last year, Mr Jasmid bought a Sony brand laptop worth $1700 and a 32-inch television set valued at $1354 from one Sikeli Marakiwai. It was during Marakiwai's arrest and interview at the police station that he informed the investigating officers that he had sold the stolen items to a man who also lived in the same neighbourhood at Nabua Muslim League settlement.

The case has been adjourned to February 15 when Mr Jasmid is expected to submit his mitigation.
