TWO men were sentenced to eight years in jail for a home invasion robbery two years ago.

The High Court in Suva sentenced Filipe Delana and Sanaila Tabualevu to 10 years, however considering the time the two had spent in remand, Delana was told he would have to spend eight years nine months in jail while Tabualevu eight years and three months.

The facts of the case are that the two men with another forced their way into the Narayan family house on July 27, 2012.

The men forced their way into the house and assaulted the eldest son of the family and then had the family confined to one room where they watched the three men plunder their belongings which included jewellery and cash.

The robbers then stole the vehicle belonging to the Narayan family.
