A 49-year-old Labasa labourer had his sentence suspend­ed by Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday.

Simione Rakadi appeared before Magistrate Cama Tuberi for one count of assault.

Representing the accused was Le­gal Aid lawyer Sharmila Devi.

It was alleged that the accused as­saulted a man on June 12, 2014, af­ter things allegedly started going missing from his home.

Ms Devi told the court that the ac­cused was married, has three chil­dren and is the sole breadwinner for his family. He was remorseful and had promised that he would not reoffend again.

Magistrate Tuberi said he had tak­en into consideration the facts dur­ing mitigation and therefore sen­tenced the accused to six months imprisonment which was suspend­ed for three years.
