Man kept in custody

Shalveen Chand

A man kept in the custody of the state yesterday asked the Magistrates Court in Suva for a judicial review of the way prisoners were treated in the remand centre by the police, and in correctional facilities by prison wardens.

Josua Kalatolu appeared before Magistrate Sofia Hamza and made the verbal application.

Mr Kalatolu said he was kept in remand for a Lautoka matter and appeared as his case was called for mention. He said the condition of remand centres was not suited for prisoners. But Magistrate Hamza told Mr Kalatolu there was a process to follow.

Mr Kalatolu was told to make submissions to the registry, which would then inform the presiding magistrate. For his substantive matter, Kalatolu was remanded for another 14 days to appear on January 20 on a charge of aggravated robbery.
