Juveniles appear on burglary and robbery charges

ABOUT 15 juveniles fronted the High Court in Suva yesterday morning, most of them charged either with aggravated robbery or burglary.

In a case from Koro Island, seven youths which included six juveniles were charged with aggravated burglary. The youths were alleged to have stolen a brushcutter on the island.

The seven had their bail extended and were told their case was being remitted to the Magistrates Court and would be called next week.

In another case, five youths including three juveniles aged as young as 15, were alleged to have been part of a burglary involving $38,000 cash.

The juveniles were kept at the Suva Boys Centre.

Justice Paul Madigan took a swipe at the prosecution as they objected to bail saying $3500 was found on the boy.

Justice Madigan said he was really surprised that the state prosecution would tither a 15-year-old's bail application.

The boy was released into the custody of his parents and told that as part of his bail he was to attend school.

The matter will be called in the High Court as the amount involved is insignificant.
