A 34-YEAR-OLD former lawman who is alleged to have

Station has been given two weeks to prepare for his case. Netani Seru appeared before Magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday charged with one count of destroying evidence and one count of receiving a corruption benefit. Mr Seru told the court he had a private lawyer and requested for a month's time to prepare for the case. Declining the request, Mr Lakshman gave two week's time for the former policeman to prepare for his case. It is alleged that Mr Seru burnt the exhibits in June 2011. The matter will be recalled on March 21.
