THE suspect in the theft of $50,000 worth of the new $100 bills from a bank in Suva will know next month whether he will be granted bail.

Former security officer, Viliame Cama — who is in custody at Korovou Prison appeared before Magistrate Yohan Liyanage at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

He was represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer Jeremaia Savou who took over after Seremaia Waqainabete stood down from representing Mr Cama.

Mr Cama is charged with one count of theft. Mr Savou presented his affidavit with two sureties to the court and said his client had strong family ties.

"Both the sureties are employed and can provide surety for him," Mr Savou said. The court heard the accused's mother and his uncle, who brought him up, were willing to bail him out.

The Director of Public Prosecutions Office did not object to the bail application.

Mr Liyanage adjourned the matter to February 12 for plea and bail ruling.

Vasemaca Senilagakali, who is separately charged with giving false information to a public servant in relation to the robbery, also appeared in the same court yesterday.

The court heard Ms Senilagakali's summary of facts will be read in court in the next hearing.
