THE Suva Magistrates Court has discharged a shipping company managing director of an assault charge after he reconciled with the complainant.

Subramani Goundar appeared before Magistrate Sofia Hamza yesterday.

The court heard Mr Goundar, 51, had reconciled with the complainant and that he needed to be cleared because he would travel to Canada on Monday.

The offence was committed on July 25 last year in Mr Goundar's vessel, the Lomaiviti Princess, while on its way back to Suva from Koro Island in Lomaiviti.

The complainant, an employee of the Public Works Department, was on board the vessel with a government vehicle.

Mr Goundar and the complainant were involved in a commotion upon arrival in Suva over the payment for the vehicle.

During the confrontation Mr Goundar punched the complainant.

Magistrate Hamza took into account the fact that the men had reconciled and discharged him accordingly.
