Saturday, April 05, 2014

BAIL for a 37-year-old schoolteacher has been extended to May 19 by the Labasa Magistrates Court.

The teacher was earlier bailed on Monday for $2000 on three counts of annoying a person and one of indecent assault.

On Thursday, the police laid eight fresh charges against him of annoying a person and two of indecent assault.

Police prosecutor Nilesh Prasad told the court the suspect was teaching in the area where the victims resided.

Magistrate Nilan Thushara granted bail on the conditions that the accused not set foot in the Vunimoli area and not interfere with the witnesses and victims.

The accused has also been ordered to appear at Labasa Police Station every Saturday as part of his bail conditions.
