Policewoman airlifted to CWM; husband bailed

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 4:18PM THE man who bashed his policewoman wife in Labasa last weekend has been granted bail.

Laisiasa Nakaibau, 28, has been charged with a count of act with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

He appeared before Magistrate Jeremaia Savou today.

Mr Nakaibau's defence lawyer Uraia Koroi of the Legal Aid Commission applied for bail on the grounds that his client's children needed a parent at home.

He told the court that his client's injured wife was airlifted to CWM hospital in Suva yesterday.

Police prosecutor Monish Chandra objected to bail saying the offence was serious.

But Mr Savou granted bail on strict conditions, including a fortnightly visit to the Labasa Police Station.
