Bail Conditions Varied For Police On Kill Charge

Eight officers, who have been charged over the death of Vilikesa Soko, appeared at the High Court in Lautoka yesterday.

Manasa Talala, Seruvi Caqusau, Kelevi Sewatu, Penaia Drauna, Filise Vere, Viliame Vereivalu, Jona Davonu and Senitiki Natakasavu have been jointly charged with one count of manslaughter with an alternative count of rape.

They appeared before High Court judge Justice Aruna  Aluthge while their Defence lawyer had sought 14 days from the court to prepare grounds for their voir dire.

The Defence also made an application to dispense with the current reporting conditions for the accused persons.

Considering submissions by all parties, the court made an order varying all accused persons reporting conditions. The eight are now to report to the nearest Police Station every last Saturday of every month between 9am-12pm.

The matter has been adjourned to July 3 for mention and bail for all the eight accused have been extended.
