Impressive bail application declined

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 2:11PM FIJI High Court judge Justice Riyaz Hamza was impressed with the bail application of a rape suspect at the High Court in Suva today.

The accused person who is alleged to have raped his step-daughter this year filed the bail application in person.

Justice Hamza said that the application looked interesting with case authorities that accompanied it.

The court was then informed that the application was done in the remand centre.

Justice Hamza responded and acknowledged the good advisors available in the remand centre.

However, he said even though the application was impressive, there was nothing in the application that talked about the Bail Act.

The accused had been further remanded and the matter has been adjourned to September 21.
