Petaia Korotukana appeared before the Nadi Magistrates Court yesterday charged with one count of dangerous driving occasioning death.

It is alleged that on April 27 the 41-year-old was dangerously driving a vehicle when it hit Josevata Mokalou. This later led to the death of Mr Mokalou near the Votualevu roundabout opposite the Aerotown Service Station in Nadi.

The accused appeared before Magistrate Siromi Turaga. Defence lawyer Unaisi Baleilevuka requested the court for their plea to be deferred to a later date.

State prosecutor Sergeant Francis Bale objected to bail.

Magistrate Turaga further remanded the accused. The matter has been adjourned to Thursday for plea.
