Alleged Clinic Robbers Case Transferred To High Court

Two 22-year-old men alleged to have robbed a medical clinic in Nadera on August 20, 2018, had their case transferred to the High Court in Suva yesterday.

Maika Tovagone and Asesela Naureure appeared in the Nasinu Magistrates Court before Magistrate Charles Ratakele represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer, Shantel Hazelman.

Both men face a charge of aggravated robbery while Tovagone is charged with an additional count of resisting arrest and Naureure is charged with criminal intimidation.

It is alleged that around midday on the day of the alleged incident, the duo entered the Rubina Medical Clinic at Qarase Road in Nadera and robbed Roy Farrales of assorted items valued at $881.

On that same day without lawful excuse Naureure allegedly threatened Peceli Tuisese with a cane knife with intent to cause alarm to him.

Tovagone then allegedly resisted arrest by Police Corporal Salaciela Tabalailai in due execution of his duty.

Police Prosecutor Constable Elenani Volatabu said the duo were charged with an indictable offence and made an application for the case to be transferred to the High Court.

Magistrate Ratakele remanded both men in custody until September 4, 2018 when their case is expected to be listed for first call in the High Court.

Their bail applications will also be determined in the High Court.
