Request for medical report

By Shalveen Chand
Friday, January 17, 2014

THE lawyer representing a man charged with assault has told the court they would like the Saint Giles Hospital to give his client's psychological analysis.

Pradeep Chand is charged with assault causing actual bodily harm, however, he is a St Giles Hospital patient with a mental disorder requiring regular clinics.

The accused appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

Defence lawyer Amrit Chand told the court his client was examined four months ago but so far there had been no report forthcoming from the psychiatric facility.

He said the accused attended regular clinics at St Giles and had been there twice for a report.

He added the last time they were told the doctor in question was on leave.

Mr Chand told the court because of his mental condition, his client found it hard to travel, especially long distances.

The court made an order for St Giles to present the accused's report as soon as possible.

The case has been adjourned to January 30.
