Man Who Allegedly Assaulted 8-year-old son Granted Bail

A man charged with one count of assault causing actual bodily harm against his eight-year-old son was granted bail by the Labasa Magistrates Court, yesterday.

Resident Magistrate Jeremaia Savou granted the man’s bail application un­der two strict conditions, which are a $200 bail bond and a restraining order.

Magistrate Savou said the alleged of­fence took place on December 19, 2017 at Waitavala in Taveuni.

“You assaulted your eight-year-old son at Waitavala in Taveuni on December 19, 2017, where he sustained serious in­juries,” he said.

“With the bail granted, you are not al­lowed to have direct contact with your eight-year-old son and will need to pay for a bail bond of $200.”

“You are not allowed to have contact with your son until your next hearing.”

The court heard that the eight-year-old child is currently living with a relative.

The matter will be called again at the Taveuni Magistrates Court on February 15, 2018.
