Production Order Issued For Man Charged With Assault

A 25-year-old man alleged to have assaulted his four-year-old daughter and three-year-old niece on June 11, 2018 failed to appear in court yesterday

Suva Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa issued a production order so that the accused, who is remanded in custody, could be brought to court.

He said it was an indictable offence.

The accused, who is employed as a baker, faces one count of assault causing actual bodily harm, and two counts of act intended to cause grievous harm.

On the day of the alleged incident at about 7pm the accused assaulted his 27-year-old wife, daughter and niece at their Howell Road home in Samabula.

The alleged incident took place after an argument erupted between the accused and his wife regarding the teachings being done to their daughter and his niece.

The accused was further remanded in custody and his case will be called in Magistrates Court Three on July 9.

Sergeant Luke Qerawaqa appeared for the prosecution.
