Assault trial to proceed

Shalveen Chand
Friday, January 10, 2014

A CHINESE national was told by the Magistrates Court in Suva yesterday three of the charges against him would have to proceed because they were irreconcilable.

Guan Xia Juan, 27, is charged with assaulting and obstructing a police officer.

The police prosecution told the court the officer in question and the accused had reconciled but Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili told Mr Guan only one charge could be dropped.

Mr Guan's charges were read to him in Mandarin and he replied he understood the charges.

After his legal rights were explained to him, Mr Guan told the court he would hire a lawyer.

Mr Guan is alleged to have committed the offence on December 30.

He was arrested on the same day and consequently spent two nights in remand before being granted bail.

Mr Guan was told by the court that when he next appears, he would be asked to take a plea.

He was also told to bring his lawyer to court.

The case resumes on January 23.
