Four men charged in relation to the death of a 21-year-old man outside a bowser at Nakasi last Wednesday night appeared in the Nasinu Magistrates Court in Valelevu yesterday.

Bowser attendant Alipate Naimoso, 24, Epeli Tucila, 27, Saimoni Tucila, 21, and Saimoni Tucila Snr, 53, appeared before Magistrate Sufia Hamza.

The four men are each charged with one count of murder.

The charges were read out to all four accused to which they indicated they understood and have sought for Legal Aid assistance.

It is alleged that the four men murdered Sitiveni Qali outside the bowser after a fight broke out.

Police prosecution confirmed serving the first phase of disclosures and made an application that the matter be transferred to High Court because it was an indictable offence.

Magistrate Hamza granted the application and remanded the four accused in custody. The case has been adjourned to March 4.
