Convict looks for missing file

A MAN sentenced to nine years in jail came before the High Court in Suva yesterday to ask for his missing file.

Akuila Kamikamica was sentenced to nine years after he pleaded guilty to robbery with violence in 2010.

He pleaded guilty to two counts and was ordered to serve four and nine years concurrently, meaning he serves the term with the longer sentence.

Kamikamica's case was listed as a first call.

Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions Michael Delaney told the court his office had been instructed to appear in court.

Justice Salesi Temo asked what the accused was doing in court as he had no applications.

He said Kamikamica's last application to appeal out of time had been denied.

Mr Delaney said the state wished it could assist but they too were in the dark.

Kamikamica told the court that his file with the Corrections Service did not show that he was to serve his term concurrently.

He said the Corrections Service had told him he was to serve the term consecutively which meant he would serve 14 years in jail.

The case will be called again on April 30 to check on the status of Kamikamica's file.
