The case of Police officers Manasa Talala, Seruvi Caqusau, Kelevi Sewatu, Penaia Drauna, Filise Vere, Viliame Vereivalu, Jona Davonu, Pita Matairavula and Senitiko Natakasavu, who are charged with the rape of Viliame Soko, was called for mention at the High Court in Lautoka yesterday.

The charge is rape contrary to section 207 of the Crimes Decree 2009 and in addition, Talala and Vereivalu are also charged with defeating the course of justice by instructing other Police officers to make false statements.

The accused appeared before Justice Aruna Aluthge and pleaded not guilty to their respective counts.

The State’s application to revoke bail was withdrawn by leave of the court.

The matter has been adjourned to April 18 for both parties to agree on admitted facts. Meanwhile bail has been extended to all accused persons.
