Family fears for safety

THE High Court in Suva is considering imposing a long sentence of imprisonment because of fears that if released, he would be violent towards his wife and family.

Asalusi Deni has pleaded guilty to a charge of acting with intent to cause grievous harm for throwing a spear at his son during an argument.

In court yesterday, Justice Salesi Temo told the defence counsel Deni's wife had written to the court expressing fear for their family's safety if Deni was released.

"There are lots of domestic violence and murder cases at the moment ... it's a very serious offence. Sometimes a long time in custody makes people ready to change," said Justice Temo.
