Alleged cybercrime two out on bail

TWO men alleged to have been part of a cybercrime where they allegedly hacked into a bank's computer system and laundered $24,000 were granted bail.

Manjeet Singh and Rajneel Chaudhry had their cases called separately.

State prosecution informed the court that they were not objecting to bail.

The court was told that bail could be granted if the two surrendered their travel documents, do not interfere with prosecution witnesses and report to the nearest police station three times a week.

Mr Singh's lawyer, Aseri Vakaloloma, told the court that sureties were available.

He said they agreed to everything said by the prosecution but not with reporting three times a week.

According to Mr Vakaloloma, Mr Singh was a student and reporting three times a week was an inconvenience.

Mr Chaudhry's lawyer, Avinesh Reddy, also argued that reporting three times a week was unnecessary.

The prosecution told the court it had to consider the seriousness of the offence. The court was told that sentences for the offence ranged between $120,000 fine and 20 years imprisonment.

The court ordered that the two accused report three times a week and application for variation could be made later.
