Saturday, February 01, 2014

THE case of the alleged murder of a Nadi woman this week has been transferred to the High Court in Lautoka.

Yesterday 35-year-old murder suspect Talat Mahamood appeared in the Nadi Magistrates Court charged with a count of murder.

Appearing before Magistrate Kashyapa Wickaramasekara, Mr Mahamood asked to seek the assistance of the Legal Aid Commission.

Mr Wickaramasekara allowed him time to seek legal aid and transferred the case to the High Court as it was an indictable offence.

The case has also been handed over to the Director of Public Prosecutions' office.

Mr Mahamood has been remanded in custody and will reappear in the High Court in Lautoka on February 12.
