A CHINESE national charged with obstructing and assaulting a police officer was granted bail yesterday after surrendering his travel documents and posting $1000 cash bail to the Suva Magistrates Court.

Guan Xia Juan, 27, was granted bail in a special court sitting yesterday after appearing on a charge of obstructing and assaulting a police officer on Monday, December 30.

Mr Guan is alleged to have obstructed a police officer who was booking a woman for a traffic offence. He also allegedly assaulted the police officer in the process.

Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili said he would postpone the matter until next Thursday to ensure reconciliation takes place.
