Free to travel

A BUSINESSMAN has been allowed bail variation so he can travel to Australia to attend a board meeting.

Chairman and chief executive of Viti Mining Limited John Sanday had asked for the changes in his bail condition.

Mr Sanday is charged with assault and the bail conditions do not allow him to travel abroad.

His lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma made the application yesterday.

Initially the matter was stood down as the police prosecution claimed they had not received any affidavits.

Mr Vakaloloma told the court that he had spoken to a prosecutor but had forgotten his name.

Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili told Mr Vakaloloma that such affidavits have to be addressed to the divisional prosecution officer.

When the matter was called at 11am, Mr Sanday was granted the changes he wanted and allowed to travel.

He provided two sureties who are employees of Viti Mining Limited and both in positions ranked below Mr Sanday.

The two sureties were accepted and told to surrender their travel documents. Mr Sanday's case will be called again on February 13.
