Dad in court for assault

Mere Naleba
Tuesday, January 27, 2015

THE father accused of assaulting his eight-year-old daughter has been further remanded in custody after appearing in the Nasinu Magistrates Court yesterday.

The man appeared before Magistrate Charles Ratakele.

He was told the court would decide on his bail application in the next court hearing.

The accused, while requesting bail, told the court he was the breadwinner in his family, where five of his seven children were still in school.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Feroz Khan objected to bail on the grounds that the accused had a habit of hitting all his children.

He asked the court to remand the man in custody for the safety and welfare of the victim, as well as her siblings.

The matter has been adjourned to February 6.
