Pair in remand

TWO men allegedly involved in a bank hacking that included laundering $24,000 have been remanded.

Manjit Singh was called to the dock first in the Suva Magistrates Court on a charge of money laundering.

Defence counsel Aseri Vakaloloma made an application for bail, telling the court his client was a first offender and not a bail risk.

The prosecution told the court the charges were serious and they would object to bail. In addition, the prosecution requested if the defence could make a formal application and that the prosecution be given time to respond.

Mr Vakaloloma told the court it was a norm to make verbal applications during the first call.

The court said if the prosecution needed time to respond, they would be given time.

The prosecution has until today to file objections. A decision on bail is expected tomorrow.
