A  Police officer, charged for driving without holding a valid licence and allegedly causing an accident, appeared in Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday.

Ratu Lepani Rokodudu is facing four different charges. He appeared before Magistrate Jeremaia Savou.

He has been charged for allegedly driving an unregistered motor vehicle, driving without a valid licence, driving a motor vehicle without third party policy and charged for dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm.

It was alleged that he was driving a friend’s vehicle under the influence of alcohol when he caused an accident along Wainikoro-Labasa Road on September 9.

Rokodudu was represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer Uraia Koroi.

Mr Koroi requested for his client to be given bail.

Magistrate Savou said since the remand centre was overcrowded with more than 100 people he released the officer on bail on a surety of $200.

He then said since the accused is a Police officer of the same profession as Police prosecutor Corporal Monish Chandra, the case would be handled by the Director of Public Prosecutions office.

The case has been adjourned for mention on November 9.
