A MAN informed the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday he failed to turn up on his court dates over the past two years because he had totally forgotten about them.

Anil Kumar, who faces charges of careless driving and giving false information to a police officer, appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili after he heard that a bench warrant had been issued against him.

Mr Kumar told the court he had been on Bounty Island in Yasawa during the time the warrant had been issued for him and it was the reason he had forgotten he had a case pending.

Mr Ratuvili told Mr Kumar it was important he attended his court case because it was a serious matter and he had also breached his bail conditions.

However, Mr Ratuvili released Mr Kumar on bail and adjourned the matter to January 9.
