THE people of Fiji are sick and tired of burglary and thefts committed by cowardly individuals.
High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo made the comment while refusing the bail application of a 22-year-old man accused of theft and aggravated burglary.
Justice Temo said sending those accused of such crimes to be remanded in custody should send a message to like-minded offenders to think otherwise.
Jalesi Batimudramudra pleaded not guilty to both counts of theft-related charges.
The matter has been adjourned to November 14.
