Three men charged with one count each of serious assault of a public officer appeared before Magistrate Peni Daletuicama in the Nadi Magistrates Court yesterday.

They were 42-year- old, Isei Tuidraki, 25-year-old Marika Vacokowale and 40-year-old, Vilimoni Nasau.

Tuidraki is also charged with one count of theft for stealing a Police uniform and another count of impersonating a public officer.

It is alleged that the three were under the influence of alcohol when the incident happened on June 24,  at  Korovuto, Nadi.

Tuidraki and Vacokowale were alleged to have assaulted Police Corporal Janesh Prasad and they all resisted arrest by Special Constable Samuela Malua.

Magistrate Daletuicama has adjourned the case to July 10, where the three accused can submit a formal bail application before the court.

They have been remanded at the Natabua Corrections Centre in Lautoka.
