BAIL was cancelled for a man who previously failed to turn up to court and was told he would remain in custody until the completion of his trial.
Pita Natau, who is charged with a count of rape, came to court after missing prior call dates.
Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam asked Mr Natau to explain why he didn't make it to court on February and March.
Mr Natau said his lawyer had told him the next court date was in September.
Justice Kumararatnam told Mr Natau the excuse wasn't good enough.
He said it was the courts that give dates and not lawyers.
Justice Kumararatnam told Mr Natau he would like to talk to the absent defence counsel and find out who was telling the truth. The court was told the defence counsel was abroad.
The court told the accused to have his lawyer present in court on the next court date on June 13.
