Case terminated

Mere Naleba
Thursday, June 05, 2014

THE criminal case of a taxidriver was yesterday terminated after the accused and the complainant reconciled in open court.

The accused Alipate Naivalurua, 24, a taxidriver, was charged with one count of common assault after slapping a Rup Chand, 42, on the face.

The court heard that on July 25 last year Mr Chand, also a taxidriver, had asked Mr Naivalurua to write down his location in their taxi stand log book.

When Mr Chand returned to their base in Tamavua, he found out that Mr Naivalurua had not performed his request and when he questioned Mr Naivalurua, he received a slap.

Mr Naivalurua was reminded by Magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman that he was lucky that Mr Chand had accepted his apology.

Proceeding against the case was terminated.
