No bail, man in remand

THE Tavua Magistrates Court has refused bail for a Lautoka man who was issued with a total of five bench warrants between 2011 and 2012.

Charged with one count of obtaining financial advantage by deception, Salen Prasad was ordered to remain in a remand centre and wait for trial after he was found guilty of not adhering to bail conditions issued by the court in December 2011.

Magistrate Samuela Qica said court records clearly showed the accused had not been appearing on several occasions, which was the reason bench warrants were issued on five separate occasions.

He said it was also well documented Mr Prasad had either appeared on his own or with a counsel with excuses for non-appearance.

"On one occasion, the accused informed the court that he was sick and was unable to attend his case, however, no sick sheet was produced," said Mr Qica.
