'Enemies' in court

Shalveen Chand
Saturday, February 08, 2014

TWO men alleged to have been involved in a burglary involving a million dollar watch asked the High Court in Suva to be tried separately yesterday.

Luke Kata and Aminisai Danford told the court they didn't want to be tried together.

The two are charged with aggravated burglary which allegedly involved the theft of $45,000 and a watch valued at a million dollars.

Mr Danford told the court that there were other accused in this case who implicated him.

Justice Salesi Temo told the court that this happened in criminal cases.

He said things would start with everybody being friends but when people came before the court they become enemies.

The accused persons in this case were reminded that once before the court everybody fended for themselves.

The state prosecution also made an application to consolidate the cases of the other accused persons.
