MOVING into a new home has landed a man into trouble with the Magistrates Court in Suva.

Aisea Donato appeared in court for a bail variation application stemming from a charge of indecently annoying a person.

However, it was discovered Mr Donato had violated the terms of his bail by moving out of his mother's house in Cunningham.

The court had ordered Mr Donato to stay in Cunningham with his mother until the matter was resolved by the court.

Upon questioning, Mr Donato told the court he had moved to Sakoca in Tacirua with a woman with whom he had a de-facto relationship.

It was discovered Mr Donato had moved in November but failed to inform the courts.

The police prosecution asked the court to cancel Mr Donato's bail and remand him for disrespecting the courts.

Magistrate Sofia Hamza told Mr Donato that when he signed his bail papers, it clearly stated he must reside in Cunningham.

She said Mr Donato's action was a clear violation of the bail orders.

Mr Donato apologised to the court.

The court remanded Mr Donato.

He will make his next court appearance on January 20.
