Warden on assault charge

A 29-year-old Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) officer was produced in the Nasinu Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with assault.

The accused appeared before Magistrate Sufia Hamza and requested Legal Aid assistance.

On March 27, 2018, the accused allegedly assaulted his 22-year-old de facto partner causing her actual bodily harm.

The alleged incident happened around 1.30am when the accused’s partner went to the Nasinu Prison compound to tell him that their six-month-old son was admitted at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH).

Upon her arrival the couple had a heated argument which led to the accused assaulting her by punching her chin and right rib.

Police prosecutor Constable Setareki Mocevakaca served the accused with full phase disclosures.

The accused was refused bail because it was a domestic matter.

Magistrate Hamza adjourned the case to April 3, 2018, for mention.
