Hospital orders for 2

TWO remand prisoners have been granted orders so they could be taken hospital.

Peni Tukai, Michael Scott and Peni Matairavula are charged with aggravated robbery and the three have been remanded by the court.

Mr Scott told Justice Janaka Bandara that authorities hadn't complied with a previous order for him to be taken to a hospital.

He told the court that he had rashes around his genital area and needed to go to the PJ Twomey Hospital in Tamavua so he could see a skin specialist.

Justice Bandara asked the police escort if it was possible for them to take Mr Scott to Tamavua to which the response was yes.

Mr Tukai informed the court that he was due to go back for a review to the CWM Hospital but that hasn't happened.

He told the court that he was still feeling the symptoms.

Justice Bandara ordered that Mr Tukai be taken to the hospital for the review and a report of the visitation to be submitted to the court by the doctor.
