Bail denied

Shalveen Chand

A MAN who previously escaped from custody has been told he has no regard for the law.

Sanaila Tabualevu, who is charged with aggravated robbery, appeared before Justice Paul Madigan.

Mr Tabualevu's third bail application was rejected yesterday.

Justice Madigan told Mr Tabualevu that by escaping he had clearly demonstrated he had no respect for custody. Mr Tabualevu told the court he was innocent until proven guilty and on that assumption he should be allowed bail.

He was told the court was well aware of that but his escape from custody posed a question about his intent to show up to court.

In another matter, Leveni Drodrolagi was told to get a surety if he wanted bail.

Justice Madigan queried why he was making a third bail application.

Mr Drodrolagi explained that on the last two occasions he had appeared in the Magistrates Court and was told only the High Court could grant him bail.
