Special Sitting For Remand Escapees

The Suva Magistrates Court will hold a special sitting today for four of the five remand prisoners who escaped from the Suva Courthouse Cell Block on Tuesday afternoon.

A number of people are also expected to appear in court charged with harbouring the escapees.

Emosi Baledrokadroka, Maika Tovagone, Suliano Rokosuka and Jonacani Qalova were recaptured after a 48-hour special operation by Police officers.

Still on the run is Niko Talemaitoga.

Rokosuka was arrested by officers of the special task force at Wailea Settlement, Vatuwaqa, on Wednesday night.

Emosi Baledrokadroka was arrested at Nakasi, Nasinu, yesterday morning while Tovagone and Qalova were arrested at Vugalei, Lami.

As a result of the cell block breakout, 12 Police officers were suspended without pay pending the outcome of an Internal Affairs investigation.
