A 23-year-old farmer has been remanded and had his case transferred to the High Court in Lautoka on April 25 for mention.

The suspect, Samuela Salaba, of Malolo, appeared before Magistrate Siromi Turaga in the Nadi Magistrates Court charged with one count of aggravated robbery and one count of unlawful possession of illicit drugs.

The Court heard that the suspect on April 13 in Nadi allegedly robbed Abdul Farook of $1070 and at the time of robbery allegedly had an offensive weapon with him.

The Court also heard that on the same day, 2.0 grams of Indian hemp (marijuana) was allegedly found in his possession.

Corporal Sharmila Lata represented the Police prosecution and informed the Court that disclosures had been served.

The suspect opted for representation by a lawyer from the Legal Aid Commission.

Magistrate Turaga told the Court that the charges were indictable offences and therefore he was adjourning the case.

The suspect is being remanded at the Natabua Corrections Centre in Lautoka.
