Lasaro Tuberi and Penioni Nakavulevu charged with an aggravated robbery totalling $102,443 appeared before High Court Judge Justice Chamath Morais in Suva yesterday.

Justice Morais yesterday refused bail for Lasaro and Nakavulevu.

The two men are also charged for one count each of breaching bail conditions.

The two accused had been remanded in custody since June 20, 2018.

Justice Morais refused bail for Tuberi and Nakavulevu on the grounds that the two accused men had previous convictions and pending matters before Suva Magistrates Court.

“The applicants have breached their bail conditions in other matters pending before the Suva Magistrates Court,” he said.

He refused and dismissed the bail hearing for both Tuberi and Nakavulevu.
