Stalker admits offence, pays $100 fine

A CASE involving a man who indecently annoyed a woman by asking her to sleep with him was closed yesterday after the court was satisfied he had paid his $100 fine.

Sarvesh Prasad was fined after admitting guilt in the Suva Magistrates Court to the incident which took place in September last year.

The court was told Prasad knew the complainant because he worked with her husband.

Prasad had entered the complainant's workplace and told her: "I want to sleep with you. You have fair complexion but that does not mean you have to show off. It will not last forever. If you sleep with me, nothing will happen to your fairness."

The court was also told Prasad had followed the complainant, photographed her and kept track of people the complainant talked to.

The matter was reported to the police and charges were laid.

In mitigation, Prasad said he was a sole breadwinner, and although he sought the forgiveness of the court he was fined $100 and warned he would spend 10 days in jail if he failed to pay the fine.

Prasad was also warned not to repeat his behaviour.

The matter was closed yesterday after the court reviewed the case and expressed satisfaction that the fine had been paid.
