Man in remand after verbal threat

 

A man who allegedly verbally threatened two Police officers was produced in the Nasinu Magistrates Court on Monday.

The accused, Maika Rokodrakia, allegedly threatened the two officers with the intention to cause them harm on February 3 this year by uttering the words “Au na vakamatei kemudrau. Au na qai kania na utomudrau.”

When literally translated into English it would read: “I will kill you both and eat your heart.”

The accused’s right to counsel was put to him in court but he chose to represent himself.

Police prosecutor Constable Ronil Ram requested for the accused’s case could be transferred to the Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili so that the accused could be referred for psychiatric evaluation.

Magistrate Charles Ratakele saw no cause to send the accused for psychiatric evaluation and remanded the accused, pending a formal bail application.

Magistrate Ratakele adjourned the case to February 9, 2018 for the accused’s bail to be decided.
