Court seeks explanation

Shalveen Chand

THE High Court in Suva ordered the prosecution to find out what an accused's wife meant when she told the court she feared for her life.

Asalusi Deni is charged with act with intent to cause grievous harm where he allegedly threw a spear at his son.

His wife had written a letter to the court saying she feared that if Mr Deni was allowed back into their life, the cycle of violence would continue.

Justice Salesi Temo called Mrs Deni to elaborate on what she meant in her letter.

She told the court that she had been married 37 years to Mr Deni and he had been a very violent man.

However, Justice Temo wanted more information which Mrs Deni was not revealing.

Justice Temo said the court had to make a decision on the bail application by Mr Deni and the court needed to know what would be the repercussions of releasing the accused into the public.

The prosecution was told to talk to Mrs Deni and provide information needed by the court.

The court will hear the case on March 10.
