Four men who are charged with aggravated robbery appeared at the Navua Magistrates Court yesterday.

Taitusi Tupateki Delai, 31, Nacanieli Bakata, 32, Josaia Dobui, 22 and Ilaitia Vuivuda, 26, appeared before Magistrate Thushara Thennakoon.

Delai is charged with a count each of aggravated robbery, theft and theft of motor vehicle.

Bakata is charged with a count each of aggravated robbery and theft of motor vehicle.

Dobui and Vuivuda are charged with aggravated robbery.

Mr Thennakoon said that the first count was an indictable offence and therefore he has transferred the matter to the Suva High Court.

The four are allegedly involved in an aggravated robbery case on the early morning of September 15, whereby they threatened a family in their home.

It is alleged that the four entered the home of an accountant in Navua and stole assorted items as well as their family car.

Dobui asked to be taken to the hospital for an examination and further informed the court that he was kept in custody for more than 100 hours and was also assaulted.

The case has been adjourned to October 2, for first call at the Suva High Court.
