Police officers Keperieli Ketewai and Luke Tavailai have pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated rob­bery.

Ketewai and Tavailai, who are jointly charged with Josaia Warodo, appeared before Justice Daniel Goundar in the High Court in Suva yester­day, each charged with one count of aggra­vated robbery.

It is alleged that on April 4, 2018, in Vunisea, Kada­vu, the three accused robbed the complain­ant’s as­sorted items all to the total value of $1580.

The state prosecutor told the court that Ketewai and Tavailai were suspended from Police duty.

Ketewai and Tavailai had pleaded not guilty to the offence, however, the second accused, Warodo had pleaded guilty.

The prosecutor had also informed the court that some of the stolen items such as the mobile phone and two bags of coins worth $50 and $100 was recovered.

The matter was adjourned for facts and mitigation for Warodo and hearing for grounds of objection for Ketewai and Ta­vailai.

The case was adjourned to September 17.
