$250 fine

A MAN was sentenced to six months imprisonment suspended for one year and fined $250 for breaching the domestic violence restraining order. Shalend Sami of Suva appeared before Magistrate Alipate Mataitini yesterday. Sami was issued a restraining order following a dispute with his spouse on March 5, last year. The accused, 10 days later went to the workplace of his spouse and verbally abused her and another person. In delivering his verdict, Mr Mataitini said Sami committed the offence out of desperation. He however, labelled Sami's actions as unlawful. The magistrate said Sami must expect to be considered a threat to the community at large given his behaviour. The matter will be reviewed on March 14.

Bail ruling

THE Suva Magistrates Court will deliver a ruling on the application for bail variation for former principal information Officer of the Ministry of Works and Transport Sainiana Radrodro on Monday. On Thursday, defence lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo insisted on an application for bail variation to allow Ms Radrodro to travel to New Zealand for her son's university orientation scheduled for February 11. Mr Vosarogo said the university study program would commence on February 18 and his client would like to be there to help her son settle in. The bail conditions do not allow Ms Radrodro to travel. Magistrate Yohan Liyanage adjourned the matter to next Monday to allow time for prosecution to file a response.
