Judge to rule on man

THE High Court in Suva told the State prosecutor to file an affidavit stating if an accused would be a threat to his family if released from custody.

Asalusi Deni appeared in court yesterday charged with a count of assault causing grievous bodily harm. He allegedly threw a spear at his son.

Justice Salesi Temo said the evidence showed Deni had a history of inflicting violence on members of his family.

He said the accused's wife's statement to the court suggested that Deni, at times, had seriously assaulted her, adding that threats had been made on her life.

He said the wife of the accused and her children feared for their lives.

He said Deni had a previous conviction where he served six months in jail for assault.

Justice Temo will make a decision on this on February 24.
