Kamoe Hae Wasele, who pleaded guilty to the charges, was sentenced to 12 months in jail for criminal intimidation and eight months for assault occasioning actual bodily harm. These are to be served concurrently.

Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne told Wasele that being a former Assistant Superintendent of Fiji Police he should be aware of the seriousness of these offences.

The offence took place in Rotuma and the victim is Wasele’s wife.

Mr Somaratne granted a permanent domestic violence restraining order (DVRO) with standard non-molestation conditions for the safety of the complainant.

Wasele has 28 days to appeal.
