No bail for uncle

Shalveen Chand
Wednesday, January 22, 2014

A MAN charged with sexual assault was told his case was very borderline for bail and the judge was not ready to make a decision yet.

The man is alleged to have sexually assaulted his three-year-old niece.

Justice Paul Madigan told the man his case was borderline for bail because he was related to the victim.

The man's case is before Justice Janaka Bandara, however, Justice Bandara returns from leave next month and until then all his cases will be called in other courts so mention dates could be given.

Justice Madigan enquired if the victim and the accused were related and if they stayed together.

The State prosecution informed the court the victim was his niece and since the incident, the victim's mother and the victim had moved out of the house.

Justice Madigan told the accused his case was before Justice Bandara and he would make a ruling regarding his bail.

The man was remanded to be produced in court on February 5.

The accused was advised that if he still pursued bail, he could make further applications.
