No medical report issued

A MAN charged with assault has been waiting for more than eight months for the St Giles Hospital to produce his medical report to the court.

Pradeep Chand of Nausori is charged with one count of assault.

Defence counsel Amrit Chand told the court his client was a patient at the psychiatric hospital.

Mr Chand said the accused was informed that the doctor responsible was on leave and due to start work on February 4.

He said what was of concern was that the accused had been to St Giles twice and there had been no report presented to the court. The court said the registry would play its part to determine the cause of the delay.

Mr Chand told the court his client would go back to St Giles for another checkup and clinic, and perhaps the court could direct another examination then.

The case will be called again on February 25.
