Trial to proceed

Shalveen Chand
Friday, March 28, 2014

"I WILL go with the doctor on whether you are fit for trial or not."

High Court judge, Justice Salesi Temo made the statement while addressing an accused.

Adriu Tuilagi is charged with robbery with violence and has since avoided two trials, the most recent one being just two weeks ago when he was admitted in hospital.

Justice Temo asked the prosecution if they would be ready for trial on Monday as a rape trial anticipated to last two weeks had just ended.

The State prosecution said they would be ready and since the voir dire had already been done, they anticipated a week-long trial. Mr Tuilagi told the court he was still unfit to stand trial and was feeling sick.

"I will take the doctor's advice when it comes to your medical condition," Justice Temo said.

"She (Selia Alexandra) said you should be fit for trial once you are discharged."

The court was informed Mr Tuilagi was released last Friday.

The trial starts on Monday.
