18 Months Behind Bars For Robbery

A man in his 20s convicted of one count of robbery yesterday was sentenced to 18 months in jail by the High Court in Suva.
Jone Delai appeared before Justice Chamath Morais.

In March 2018 in Nasinu, Delai robbed the complainant, Mohammed Nafiz, of a mobile phone valued at more than $300.
The complainant was talking to his father on the mobile phone while walking on the street when Delai forcefully grabbed the device and ran away.

Justice Morais noted that Delai was a first offender and had admitted in his caution interview that he was drunk at the time of the incident.

As a mitigating factor, Justice Morais noted that Delai was remorseful for the crime committed.
Justice Morais, while sentencing Delai, said: “The court has a responsibility to protecting the public from such behaviour.”
Delai was given 28 days to appeal.”
