Women in custody

Shalveen Chand

THREE young women and a 15-year-old girl charged with loitering for the purpose of prostitution have been kept in custody.

The Suva Magistrates Court told Bulou Damudamu, Meiva Likuselala, Setaita Marama and the juvenile to get sureties to court today.

The four were arrested early Wednesday morning in Suva and charged with the offence.

Yesterday afternoon, the four appeared before Magistrate Makareta Mua.

The charges were put to them and disclosures served.

Police prosecution told the court that they were objecting to bail because they feared the girls would return to the streets.

Ms Mua said she would allow bail if the accused persons brought in two sureties.

The matter was stood down for the four accused to get their sureties. However, when the court sitting recommenced, none of them had sureties.

Ms Mua remanded the juvenile at the Central Police Station while the other three were taken to the women's prison.

Their case will be called today to check on sureties.

They have been warned to get sureties who are older than them and who have control over them, so they don't miss court dates.
