Strict Bail Conditions For Taxi Driver

A taxi driver was granted bail by the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

David Umesh Prasad appeared before Magistrate Deepika Prakash charged with one count of bribery of public official.

It is alleged that on October 18, 2018, in Suva, Prasad failed to turn left as indicated by the road marking in Renwick Road.

Two police officers who were on traffic operation had noticed the driver’s vehicle which failed to comply with the road markings.

The accused allegedly bribed a Police officer of $15 and asked her not to book him.

The accused was later taken to Totogo Police Station and charged with one count of bribery of public official.

Magistrate Prakash granted bail to the accused on the sum of $1000 bond and a surety.

She imposed strict bail conditions on the accused and told him not to reoffend or interfere with the prosecution witnesses.

The matter was adjourned for plea to November 8.
