Four Further Remanded For Alleged Sexual Assault

Former police officers Sanita Laqenasici, Jona Davonu, Semesi Naduka and former Republic of Fiji Military Forces soldier Filimone Catimaibulu appeared before Magistrates Charles Ratakele at the Nasinu Magistrates Court.

They are charged with sexual assault contrary to section 210 (1)(a) and (3)(a) of the Crimes Decree 2009 in relation to an alleged sexual assault on Iowane Benedito which occurred in November 2012.

The Defence made a bail application for all four accused persons to which the State objected.

The State asked for the men to be remanded in custody due to the seriousness of the charge, and that the maximum sentence for the offence of sexual assault is fourteen years imprisonment.

The State also informed the Court that two of the accused are charged with other serious offences in the Lautoka High Court. The matter has been adjourned for Bail Ruling on Friday 30 October 2015.

All accused have been further remanded in custody.
