State seeks more time

A CASE will be called a week later because State prosecution hopes to consolidate charges, the High Court in Suva was told yesterday.

Penaia Delai is charged with aggravated robbery. He and others are alleged to have robbed the Sunbeam Transport office in Samabula.

State prosecution told the court more time was needed for them to file more information which would lead to the consolidation of the charge.

The court was told Mr Delai was also charged with being in possession of illicit drugs.

The court was informed two other people were involved and the prosecution would like them to appear together.

Legal Aid defence counsel Michael Fesaitu confirmed receiving disclosures from the prosecution.

He told the court his client's bail application had been overlooked.

The court was told Mr Delai had filed his bail application with the registry in February this year and he had a stamped copy to prove it.

State prosecution said they had not received a copy of the application either.

The case will be called on May 27 for consolidation and bail application.
