Parents and guardians of 21 juveniles from Lami, who were caught playing touch rugby on Thursday, were told to ensure that their children obey the law.

The juveniles were produced at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday, charged with breaching social gathering orders.

Acting Inspector Monish Chandra served them with full phase disclosures.

Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa released them on $200 bail and surety bond and ordered them to stay out of trouble.

He explained individually to the sureties that their responsibilities were to ensure the juveniles appeared in court on all their court dates and do not reoffend while on bail.

The juveniles were warned not to play touch rugby anymore.

Some sureties who came to Court were unemployed so the Magistrate told them to bring someone on the next date who has a job.

Only people who can pay the bail bonds are accepted as sureties.

The case has been adjourned to June 9, for mention in the Juveniles Court.
