Lawyer Charged With Conspiracy To Defeat Cause Of Justice

A prominent Labasa lawyer charged with conspiracy to defeat the cause of justice appeared at the Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday.

Amrit Sen appeared before Magistrate Cama Tuberi.

He was represented by a private lawyer, Ami Kohli.

Police Prosecutor Constable Abinash Prasad requested Magistrate Tuberi to release Sen on strict bail conditions, not to interfere with state witnesses and surrender his travel documents.

Mr Kohli said Sen is due to have his medical check-up and all arrangements have been made.

He then explained that Sen has been practicing law for so many years and his family is in Labasa and he would not run away from the country.

He then requested for name suppression.

Magistrate Tuberi denied name suppression, however, he told Mr Kohli that he has time to make the necessary application provided with valid reasons.

Sen has been released on bail as he provided two sureties who paid a bond of $500 each.

Moreover, he is allowed to travel for his medical treatment, but advised to provide all relevant documents.

The case has been adjourned for mention on February 12.
