Bench Warrant Cancelled For Accused
April 05
10:00 2018

 

A 35-year-old engineer charged with breaching the zero alcohol limit told the court yesterday that he could not attend court on April 3, 2018 because he was caught up in the flood in Ba.

A bench warrant was issued against the accused, Pauliasi Rabeka, by Magistrate Liyanage Wickramasekara on Tuesday but it was cancelled in court yesterday when he appeared.

It is alleged that Rabeka, on December 26, 2017, while holding a provisional driving licence, drove a motor vehicle with registration HQ382 along Ratu Mara Road while under the influence of alcohol, which breached the condition of zero alcohol limit.

Rabeka’s bail was extended and his case adjourned to May 16, 2018 for his plea to be taken. Police Prosecutor Corporal Walter Taito appeared for the State. Rabeka did not have a lawyer. Edited by Naisa Koroi
