A bench warrant has been issued for Suva lawyer, Shazran Abdul Lateef, after he failed to appear in court yesterday.

His lawyer, Davenesh Sharma also did not appear in court.

Magistrate Liyanage Wickra­masekara issued the bench war­rant for Lateef who is on bail as he failed to attend court for plea to be taken.

Magistrate Wickramasekara has also ordered the court to send notices to his sureties to be present in court on the next date.

Lateef, 57, is charged with one count of being found in posses­sion of an illicit drug, namely methamphetamine.

It is alleged that on August 7, 2018, at about 6pm a team of Po­lice officers raided a Suva hotel after receiving a tip-off.

The accused was allegedly found with 0.0136 grams of meth­amphetamine.

The case was adjourned for plea to November 2.
