Farmer Admits  Intimidation Charge

A 61-year-old farmer will be sentenced on August 6 after admitted a charge of criminal intimidation.

Veni Sigadrou appeared in the Labasa Magis­trates Court before Magistrate Seinileba Levaci yesterday represented by the Legal Aid Commission.

The court learned that in August 2016 the accused swore at his brother-in-law while holding a knife.

The argument erupted after Mr Sigadrou’s goats crossed into his brother-in-law’s property.

Im mitigation, Mr Sigadrou’s lawyer said his client was married with six children and was a farmer.

The accused and complainant live close to each other.

Mr Sigadrou was remorseful and sought forgiveness from his brother-in-law.
