High Court orders release of Nadarivatu man

THE High Court in Lautoka has granted an appeal by a Nadarivatu man who was sentenced to 12 months in prison on May 25 earlier this year after pleading guilty to charges of theft.

Inia Nairaviravi was charged after stealing nine yaqona plants from his uncle on January 18, 2016.

High Court judge Justice Paul Madigan imposed a six-month imprisonment sentence after considering the facts presented in court.

He then concluded the appellant had served this time and ordered for him to be released from custody.
