Court gives officer chance

Torika Tokalau
Saturday, January 18, 2014

A SECURITY officer was handed a three-month suspended sentence yesterday for damaging a boat.

Police prosecutor Corporal Viliame Duguivalu told the court that on December 18 last year, Mateo Suasua Namoko damaged a wooden boat in Lami.

Namoko told the court he believed the boat was used by nearby residents to transport stolen fish.

According to court proceedings, Namoko damaged the boat with a piece of wood in an incident witnessed by two Kalekana settlement youths.

In mitigation, Namoko pleaded with magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman to consider that he was a first offender and had four children to look after.
