THE Lautoka Magistrates Court has been ordered by the High Court to give priority to a robbery with violence case that has been pending for five years.

Anare Tokalauvere, one of six men charged with one count of robbery with violence, had applied for a permanent stay on prosecution proceedings citing serious prejudice would occur in his case to the extent that no trial could take place.

However, the High Court ruled that Mr Tokalauvere's grounds were unfounded given that he was responsible for some of the delays because of his non-appearance in certain hearings. Justice Sudharshana De Silva said he did not find merit in any of the ground on which the application for stay was founded.
