TWO men who appeared in the court last month on human trafficking charges will have a decision on their bail application on March 5 in the High Court in Suva.
Inoke Raikadroka, 23, of Suva, and Mohammed Sheefaz Jameer Sagaitu, 24, of Rotuma, appeared before Justice Paul Madigan yesterday.
Mr Raikadroka is charged with nine counts of trafficking in children, living on earnings of prostitution, while Mr Sagaitu is charged with two counts of living on the earnings of prostitution and three counts of domestic trafficking in children.
The court heard the pair had applied for bail while they were in custody.
Mr Raikadroka told Justice Madigan that while he was in remand he developed boils.
Justice Madigan informed the defence and State counsels that the charges were serious and involved children.
He also reminded them that in the event of a bail application, the two accused should have suitable sureties.
The counsels have been instructed to file disclosures before March 22.
