THE bail application for the six people charged with theft and receiving new $100 bills stolen from a bank in Suva was refused yet again by the Suva Magistrates Court.

Eferemo Caketi, Michael Christopher, Sunia Qerua, Vikash Prasad and Vasemaca Senilagakali appeared before Magistrate Yohan Liyanage on charges of receiving stolen property and giving false information while Viliame Cama appeared on a charge of theft.

The three security officers (Mr Cama, Mr Christopher, Mr Qerua) and Mr Prasad requested bail, telling the court they had to repay bank loans, pay rent and were sole breadwinners. Mr Christopher and Mr Cama were represented by Legal Aid lawyer Seremaia Waqainabete while Mr Prasad was represented by Raman Singh.

Mr Singh told the court his client's bail application should be considered because he own a sugarcane farm. However, Magistrate Liyanage ordered Mr Singh to provide documents to prove this.

Magistrate Liyanage told the accused they could make another written bail application while in custody and that he would also need more time to review their application. The case has been adjourned to January 22.
