Green light for bail

Mere Naleba
Saturday, January 19, 2013

A SERVING prisoner who was imprisoned in 2008 has been allowed to make a bail application because he is going to be released soon.

Semisi Rabakoko is charged with burglary, larceny from dwelling house, assault, theft of motor vehicle.

He is set to be released on February 19 for other offences he was convicted of.

Rabakoko appeared before Magistrate Alipate Mataitini and asked the court to grant him bail as he has been in incarceration since 2008 and is to be released soon.

Magistrate Mataitini informed Rabakoko he would need to make a written bail application which would be reviewed in the next court hearing.

Police prosecutor Caroline Fisher told the court that administration problems were the reason the case was adjourned almost every time it was called because the case was called in different magistrates' courtrooms.

Rabakoko's escorting officer was ordered to escort him to the Legal Aid Commission's office because he had asked for Legal Aid assistance.

The case has been adjourned to February 1.
