Burglary retrial

Shayal Devi
Monday, February 10, 2014

A RETRIAL has been granted by the High Court in Lautoka for a man charged with one count of burglary and two of theft.

Sakeasi Raikelekele was charged for allegedly breaking into the house of Rohit Deo at Namotomoto in Nadi, in 2012.

He is alleged to have stolen assorted items valued at $1450.

High Court judge Justice Sudharshana De Silva said Raikelekele had pleaded not guilty and was convicted after a trial for the third charge; he was sentenced to 16 months imprisonment on July 26 last year.

"A retrial is ordered only in respect of the third charge," Justice De Silva said.

"He is to be produced before the Nadi Magistrates Court on February 11 for consideration of bail before a retrial. The State had prayed for a retrial.

"The appellant was in remand for a period of one month before he was granted bail and further period of six months in prison after conviction."
