Sex-Charge  Ex-Headteacher Reapplies For Bail

A former headteacher of a primary school in Naitasiri charged with multiple sexual offences yesterday applied for bail again in the High Court in Suva.

The 42‑year‑old man appeared before Justice Riyaz Hamza.

Justice Hamza had previously denied him bail in November last year.

He is charged with one count each of rape and sexual assault, three counts of indecent assault and two counts of indecently annoying any person.

The alleged victims are aged between 12 and 14 years and he allegedly committed the offences sometime between the beginning of the school term until September last year.

Justice Hamza has given the defence lawyer until the 22nd of next month to file submissions on the new bail application.

The matter was adjourned for hearing to January 22, 2019.
