Woman seeks drop in charge

Mere Naleba
Wednesday, January 15, 2014

A WOMAN facing dangerous and drink driving charges yesterday requested that the prosecution drop the dangerous driving charge against her.

Margret Logavatu's lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo appeared before Suva Magistrate Sufia Hamza to make the application.

Police prosecutor Corporal Josua Shaw asked the court to be given more time to seek legal advice, and his request was granted.

The matter has been adjourned to March 20.

In a separate court case, a mentally-challenged man was further remanded in St Giles Hospital in order to be fully assessed by doctors.

Semi Mekatoa Semisi appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili charged with two counts of burglary and he pleaded guilty to both.

Lawyer Barbara Malimali asked the court that her client be escorted to St Giles Hospital and be treated as an in-patient.

She told the court her client's medical report stated doctors had not fully assessed him and that he had serious mental health issues.

The matter has been adjourned to January 21.
