The United States of America (USA) national charged for alleg­edly murdering his wife in Fiji last year was denied bail by the High Court in Lautoka on Friday.

The accused, Bradley Robert Dawson, al­legedly murdered his wife, Christe Chen, also a USA national, while on a luxurious honeymoon on Turtle Island Resort in the Yasawas on July 9, 2022.

The accused appeared before High Court Judge, Justice Riyaz Hamza.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder in September last year and has been remanded since July 10.

Justice Hamza told the accused that he had considered all the facts and denied him bail because he was worried about him being at flight risk.

The case had to be fixed early for trial this year because it would balance the scale of justice.
