A man accused of a triple robbery between November to December in Nadi last year has been remanded by Nadi Magistrates Court.

Aisea Turuva who has 83 previous convictions of similar cases, appeared before Magistrate Chandani Dias.

Police Prosecutor, Constable Dinesh Chand in objection to bail application said Turuva was a habitual offender and considering his previous 83 convictions, the matter was of public interest.

Constable Chand said the accused person was a threat to the society and he was likely not to appear for his next hearing in court as he had been evading Police since November.

For the first case, Turuva is charged with one count of aggravated robbery and one count of theft.

It is alleged that on November 23, Turuva and others entered the dwelling house as trespassers with intent to commit theft.

He and the others allegedly dishonestly appropriated $100 cash, 1 Samsung Galaxy J7 valued at $731, 1 Samsung S4-$400, Pavilion laptop-$23,000, Mangalsutra $1500, 1 Redo- $3000 and bracelet -$300, with the total amounting to $ 10,8351.00.

In the second case, Turuva is charged with one count of aggravated robbery and one count of theft.

On December 18, it is alleged that Turuva and others entered Sunita Service Station in Nalovo, Nadi as trespassers and stole goods and cash to a total value of $10,573.05.

In the third case, Turuva is charged with one count of robbery with violence.

It is alleged that on December 18, Turuva along with others entered the house of one Abdul Hakh at Sonaisali in Nadi, armed with a cane knife and a pinch bar and made off with cash and items worth $10,955.00.

Turuva who claimed that he was badly assaulted by Police, in his bail application claimed if he could go to the hospital for his medical examination and medical report.

He said prison authorities refused to take him to hospital.

In response, Constable Chand said Police could take Turuva to hospital and issue him with a medical report before being sent to prison.

Magistrate Dias remanded Turuva at Natabua Remand Facility and ordered Police to take him to the hospital and bring his medical report.

For the same cases, two others, Sakiusa Senibua, 26 and Tauyasa Vakarau, 24 were remanded at Natabua Corrections Facility on Thursday by Nadi Magistrate Mohammed Azar.

The three will appear at the Lautoka High Court on January 25.
