THREE people were produced in court yesterday on a New Year's Day special sitting for absconding bail.
Silasila Poi, Timoci Mawatu and Ashwin Prasad failed to turn up to court on their respective dates.
While Prasad pleaded guilty to the offence, Mr Poi and Mr Mawatu tried to reason with the court by giving excuses.
Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili told the men they had disrespected the court by not appearing on their given dates. Mr Mawatu and Mr Poi were remanded.
