Suspended Jail Term For 34-Year-Old

A 34-year-old man con­victed of theft has been given a sus­pended sentence so he can rehabilitate himself.

Imitiaz Moses Mallam stole six oxygen cylinders worth $920 from the Oce­ania Gas Limited on July 23, 2018.

In his mitigation, Mallam said he was married with four children and was fac­ing financial difficulties, which led him to commit the offence.

Magistrate Jioji Bosei­waqa ordered that if Mal­lam was convicted within the two years of the sus­pended sentence, this sen­tence may be activated.

Mallam was given 28 days to file an appeal to the High Court of Fiji.
