No production order prompts non-appearance of rape accused

Serving prisoner Ernest Petueli, who is charged with two counts of rape, failed to appear in the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Justice Riyaaz Hamza then questioned the escorting officers and they responded saying that a production order was not issued.

Justice Hamza told both lawyers that he would not be able to have the trial in August because there was a workshop he had to attend and further stated that a new trial date would have to be set.

It is alleged that on April 11, 2015 in Nausori Petueli raped a seven-year-old girl.

The state was represented by Eoghan Samisoni and Petueli was represented by defence lawyer Anil Chand.

The case has been adjourned to July 25, to fix a trial date.
