Four men al­legedly in­volved in a se­ries of rob­beries and bur­glar­ies were limp­ing when they ap­peared in the Navua Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day. One of the ac­cused had an eye patch. The mat­ter was called be­fore Mag­is­trate Seinileba Le­vaci, who de­nied bail for all four ac­cused. He also trans­ferred the mat­ter to the High Court in Suva. Irimia Ratu­narukutabua, 46, Jonacani Na­cani, 39, Le­meki Ko­toile­vuka, 28, and Kil­ioni Vatu­taqiri, 29, are charged with a count each of ag­gra­vated rob­bery, theft and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

It is al­leged that the four ac­cused, on Oc­to­ber 17, en­tered a villa at Pa­cific Har­bour and stole be­long­ings which had a to­tal value of $3225.

Police Prose­cu­tor Con­sta­ble Riteshni Lata told the court that the four ac­cused had other mat­ters in Suva for al­leged bur­glar­ies. Ratu­narukutabua, who sported an eye patch, told the court he needed to get his eye checked by a spe­cial­ist and not an or­di­nary doc­tor. The case has been ad­journed to Oc­to­ber 28 for first call in the High Court.
