2014 trial for robbery suspects

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, February 19, 2013

FIVE men charged with various offences, including robbery, harbouring escapees reappeared at the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Kunal Prasad, Deshwar Dutt, Maika Mateyawa, Isoa Kubunalagi and Ifereimi Sauqesa appeared before Justice Salesi Temo.

The charges are related to their alleged involvement in the armed robbery at the Bank South Pacific at Samabula last year.

The trial of the five accused will be held in 2014 because of the large number of pending cases lined up for this year.

Justice Temo noted that 27 files related to the offences were before the court and requested State lawyer Lisiate Fotofili to consolidate some of the minor charges.

Justice Temo said Mr Fotofili should consider the alleged criminality of the cases as some may confuse the court process.

Both counsels were advised to focus on the major cases including robbery.

The men were further remanded into custody while the matter was adjourned to April 26 for mention.
