Apete Kaisau, who admitted killing Fiji Red Cross Society director-general John Scott and his partner, Gregory Scrivener in 2001, will remain admitted at the St Giles Hospital in Suva.

This is after the High Court in Suva yesterday refused his application where he asked the court to discharge the President Committal order confining him to St Giles.

The alleged offence took place in 2001. Kaisau was found not guilty for the murder of the two due to the reasons of insanity and was put in St Giles.

Judge Salesi Temo, in declining Kaisau’s application, said the court wanted to know about the care and treatment and medication Kaisau has received since November 5, 2003, to date.

He said the court wanted to see expert advice and evidence to prove that Kaisau had fully recovered.

The court does not have sufficient information and the application to release him was a serious matter.

Justice Temo also ruled that he wanted to know Kaisau’s attitude towards the killing of the two because it was not professionally identified, hence an expert advice was needed.

Justice Temo said the Presidential Committal order remained and would be reviewed in the next 12 months when necessary information had been provided.
