A 35-year-old woman charged with one count of child stealing has been released on bail by the Labasa Mag­istrates Court.

Asena Raivoli appeared before Magistrate Cama Tuberi yesterday. It was alleged that the accused abducted a twin baby boy from Labasa Hospital last Sunday afternoon.

The baby belonging to a Taveuni islander was found later by Police officers at the back to Vatunibale Police Barracks in Labasa.

Raivoli was represented by Legal Aid Com­mission lawyer Vilisoni Tuicolo.

No plea was taken.

She has been released on strict bail condi­tions such as not to interfere with state wit­nesses and not to offend.

The case has been adjourned to June 11 for mention.
