Man Accused Of Sexual Offences Against Niece

 

A 58-year-old man of Bua on Vanua Levu has been further remanded in custody for alleged sexual offences against his niece.

This was after he appeared before Magistrate Cama Tuberi at the Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday.

Mr Tuberi was informed that the accused and the victim lived under the same roof and he was alleged to have committed the crime on four different occasions between January 2016 to August this year.

When he requested for bail, the Police prosecutor Corporal Monish Chandra told the court that this would risk interference with the witness and requested that the accused be remanded in custody.

Magistrate Tuberi ruled that the accused remain in custody until he made a formal application for bail from there.

He ordered that the accused be escorted to the Legal Aid Commission straight after the hearing as he wished to see a lawyer.

The case was adjourned to August 24 for mention.
