Accused brought back

AN ACCUSED man who was transferred to Labasa Corrections Centre from the Suva Remand Centre was brought back on Monday after the High Court inquired about his whereabouts.

Justice Salesi Temo had indicated that the transfer could be viewed as an attempt to sabotage the trial.

State prosecution informed the court that Adriu Tuilagi was brought to Suva on Monday afternoon following a request from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

In court yesterday, Mr Tuilagi said he would challenge the confession. He also sought the diaries of all the police stations where he'd been kept.

He said he believed he had written to the State prosecution asking for the diaries, however, the prosecution said their records didn't show that they had received any such request.

Justice Temo told Mr Tuilagi that his 20 year experience as a magistrate and a judge allowed him to differentiate between people who tell the truth and those who lie.
