A MAN charged with abduction and defilement has been ordered to get a psychiatric evaluation to see if he was aware of his actions. The Suva court last week told Onisimi Tabutaqona that court wants to see if he was fit to stand trial. The court ordered his surety to ensure he is taken to St Giles Hospital.

Bail extended

A MAN accused of rape has told the court last week that he will only be presenting two witnesses in his defence. Jitua Navosavakadua was charged for rape in Lau. The prosecution said they would be bringing five witnesses. The trial has been set for June and Navosavakadua's bail was extended.

Be on time

A MAN who missed court but presented himself had his bench warrant cancelled last week. The prosecution told the court Vyas Sharma arrived late to court because of work commitments but handed himself to the prosecution. The court cancelled the warrant and warned Mr Sharma to be in court on time.

Warrants issued

BENCH warrants were again issued for people failing to appear in court last week. The Suva court said such people wasted the court's time and money. A man charged with theft will soon have the police looking for him after he failed to appear. Another, charged with a traffic offence, also had a warrant issued.
