Six to apply for bail

Shayal Devi
Saturday, May 17, 2014

SIX people accused of raping a 16-year-old in Ra last month have been given time to apply for bail by judge Justice Sudharshana De Silva at the High Court in Lautoka.

This is after bail requests for the six were denied by the Rakiraki Magistrates Court upon their last hearing.

Appearing before Justice De Silva yesterday, the six also requested for time to select their own form of legal representatives.

They have been charged with one count of rape each.

The accused include Epeli Narara and Livai Saukuru, both 21, and Maika Kasami, 19. The three unnamed juveniles charged were two Year 11 students and a 14-year-old primary school student.

Justice De Silva also allowed the six to choose their own form of legal representation, with the accused persons choosing to seek private counsel.

They have been remanded until the next hearing.

The victim was a 16-year-old who reported the matter to her grandfather. The matter was then reported to the Rakiraki Police Station by the victim's mother.

The case would be called for mention on May 29.
