A REMAND prisoner's attempt to get a check up at the STI clinic has failed after he was told that he had to be in sexual contact with another person to contract a sexually transmitted infection.

Tevita Karavaki appeared before Magistrate Sufia Hamza yesterday afternoon.

He told the court he had syphilis symptoms.

When asked why he thought he had the infection, Mr Karavaki replied he noticed cuts on his private parts.

He has been in remand for more than three months.

He was told by the court that for him to contract syphilis he had to be sexual in contact with another person.

The court told Mr Karavaki no special order for a hospital visit would be made for him.

He was told to report the matter to the in-house physician at the remand centre who would then decide on the next course of action.

Earlier in the day, Mr Karavaki was in the High Court charged with aggravated robbery.

He is alleged to have stolen two packets of cigarettes and $33 in cash.

His case was remitted to the Magistrates Court.

Mr Karavaki was told the respective magistrate would make a decision on bail.
