A woman charged with not be­ing able to provide necessities was presented in the Nasinu Magistrates Court yesterday.

The 21-year-old woman appeared before Magistrate Charles Ratakele.

It is alleged that between July 20 and 22, 2018, in Nasinu, the accused, being in charge with the duty to pro­vide for her two-year-old daughter the necessities of life, namely proper care and supervision, without lawful excuse, failed to do so, where the life of the two-year-old girl was likely to be endangered.

Police prosecutor Gajendra Prasad told the court that he had served full disclosures to the accused. He did not object to the bail.

The accused was released on bail on the assurance of two sureties with the sum of $250 each.

Magistrate Ratakele told the ac­cused: “You’re charged for being ir­responsible, but I expect you to be responsible with your court proceed­ings.”

The matter was adjourned to Octo­ber 2.
