Hope after acquittal

FORMER police officer Amani Boseniwai was all smiles as criminal proceedings against him was terminated by the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Mr Boseniwai was charged with aggravated robbery.

Yesterday, the state prosecution filed a nolle prosequi.

Mr Boseniwai made an application to the court for the release of his travel documents and later an application to court for him to be reinstated to the police force.

Justice Salesi Temo told him that he needed to make a formal application for the court to consider his second application.

Mr Boseniwai walked out of the court room smiling.

"It has been very hard for me. After I was charged, I was terminated from the force. I held the rank of an inspector," said Mr Boseniwai.

"All I want now is to be reinstated. My family, my three children have been through a lot. There have been times in the past seven months when the only thing for dinner was cassava and tea.

"I am very grateful to family members who have supported me through my ordeal."

Mr Boseniwai said during these trying times he had been praying every day.

"Psalms 35, 'plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me', is what I have been saying every day and this has been my strength," he said.
