Five Students On Aggravated Burglary, Theft Charge Take Progressive Approach

The High Court in Labasa yesterday heard five students charged with one count each of aggravated burglary and theft decide to take progressive ap­proach.

Abu Yasin, Mohammed Hus­sain, Abdul Khan, Sahid Mo­hammed and Tazim Moham­med appeared before Justice Chamath Morais.

It is alleged they broke into the Macuata Muslim League head­quarters office located adjacent to the mosque last weekend and stole more than $4000 cash.

The five boarders, who are studying religious education at the Naseakula Mosque in Laba­sa, were represented by private lawyer Ami Kohli.

Mr Kohli requested if the case could be called before October or after November because the stu­dents had to prepare and sit for their final examinations.

Justice Morais asked state lawyer Darshani Kumar if she would be in a position to pre­pare the relevant documents for an early court date this month, she replied yes.

The students are between the ages of 18 to 21.

They appeared while on strict bail conditions.

The case has been adjourned for September 14.
