Farmer pleads guilty to assault

A 27-year-old man who allegedly assaulted a 25-year-old man of Siberia in Labasa last year appeared yesterday in the Labasa Magistrates Court.

Ilaitia Verevanua, who is charged with assault causing actual body harm, has pleaded guilty to the charge. He appeared before Magistrate Seinileba Levaci.

The court learned that Verevanua allegedly punched the complainant twice on the head. During mitigation Verevanua said he was married, a first offender, and a farmer. He asked the court for forgiveness and sought a lenient sentence. Magistrate Levaci said it was a reconcilable matter and adjourned the case to April 25, 2018.
