Bail for theft accused

MAGISTRATE Alipate Mataitini yesterday warned a man charged with theft to take his bail conditions very seriously.

Semisi Naikaivalu had failed to appear in court since he was granted bail for $500 on April 15 last year.

Mr Mataitini asked him where he had been since.

Mr Nakaivalu replied that he had been in the village.

"Can you pay the $500?

"It's simple, you are in breach of your bail conditions when you don't come to court," Mr Mataitini said.

He said the accused claimed it wasn't his fault that unpaid items from a supermarket were found in his bag.

The accused was told to look for a witness which he must produce at the next hearing on September 26

"You obviously can't pay the fine and I will waive this," Mr Mataitini said.

"If you repeat this, a bench warrant will be issued for you.

"You should treat this seriously when I grant you bail."

Mr Mataitini adjourned the case to September 26.
