Three police officers and one soldier were produced at the Nasinu Magistrates’ Court this afternoon charged with sexual assault contrary to section 210 (1)(a) and (3)(a) of the Crimes Decree 2009.

They are charged in relation to an alleged sexual assault on Iowane Benedito which occurred in November 2012.

The four are: Sanita Laqenasici, (Police Officer), Jona Davonu, (Police Officer), Filimone Catimaibulu, (Soldier), and Semesi Naduka, (Police Officer).

All four have opted to be tried in the Magistrates’ Court. The State informed the Court that it will object to bail once a formal application for bail is made by the defence.

All accused have been further remanded and the matter has been adjourned to 28 October 2015. -E
