THE High Court in Suva warned a man charged with murder he risks spending a long time in remand.

Devendra Naicker is charged with murder in connection with the death of a taxidriver.

Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam told Mr Naicker he had set a two-week trial based on the assumption the proposed facts would be agreed to.

He said after taking more than four months, the defence counsel told the court they would not be consenting to the agreed facts.

He said with added witnesses the trial would take longer than two weeks, and he would have no choice but to vacate the trial date.

Mr Naicker was told if this happened, the court could revoke bail and keep him in remand until the end of the trial.

Mr Naicker said his counsel wasn't present although he had made attempts to find him.
