Three To Appear In High Court

Three men charged with aggravated robbery will ap­pear in the High Court in Suva on June 28, 2018.

Emmanuel Ismail Sami, 28, Prit Praneel Kumar, 33, and Lawrence Avinesh Nath, 38, appeared in the Nasinu Magistrates Court on Thursday before Magistrate Sufia Hamza and sought Legal Aid representation.

On June 20, 2018, the trio allegedly robbed the complain­ant, namely Monit Karan, and allegedly stole $120 cash and an Alcatel mobile phone valued at $300 from him.

The total value of the stolen items was $420, the property of Mr Karan. It is alleged that force was used on the com­plainant.

Police Prosecutor Constable Setareki Mocevakaca served the three men with full phase disclosures in Court.

He then made an application to have the case transferred to the High Court because the offence was indictable in na­ture.

Magistrate Hamza granted the application and remanded the three men in custody pending their appearance in the High Court.

The case has been adjourned to June 28, 2018 for first call.
