Goundar gives evidence

A MAN accused of causing the death of a 35-year-old man in Nausori in 2016 told the High Court in Suva yesterday that he felt his car had hit something but he was not sure what it was.

While giving evidence, Subramani Goundar said he had also admitted to police during his caution interview what he felt when he was driving.

Thus, he refuted what was further recorded in his caution interview that he had turned off the headlights of his vehicle when he saw the police.

Mr Goundar said he did not turn off the headlights of his vehicle and that he did not see the team of police officers on the road.

Mr Goundar said he was taken straight to the police station after he was stopped by police.

High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo also raised concerns over the use of the English language, especially on how police officers recorded the caution interview statement.

During the trial, Justice Temo said the caution interview statement was written poorly.

The trial continues today.
