A 28-year-old hotel security officer of Suva, charged with murder, has been remanded in custody by the Suva Magistrates Court.

Timoci Cakau appeared before Magistrate Asanga Bodaragama yesterday.

It is alleged that on December 24, 2018, in Suva, Cakau murdered 52-year-old Ratu Emosi Seru Tagivakatini.

The incident occurred at a nightclub in Suva when the accused allegedly assaulted Ratu Emosi.

Police prosecutor Jitendra Singh served full phase disclosures to the accused, who waived his right to counsel.

Magistrate Bodragama informed the court that the offence was an indictable one and transferred the matter to the High Court in Suva.

He also told the accused to file a notice of alibi, if any, in the High Court.

The matter was adjourned to January 21 for first call.
