A28-year-old man ap­peared at the Suva Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day for al­legedly as­sault­ing a 44-year-old woman in his com­mu­nity. The mat­ter was called be­fore Mag­is­trate Waleen Ge­orge. Sa­muela Le­sub­ula is charged with as­sault caus­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm. The al­leged in­ci­dent oc­curred on Oc­to­ber 27, in Lami. Po­lice Pros­e­cu­tor Caro­line Fisher served full phase dis­clo­sures and ob­jected to bail as the vic­tim lives in the same com­mu­nity. Mag­is­trate Ge­orge granted Le­sub­ula bail in the sum of $200 as it is a rec­on­cil­able of­fence. He has told the ac­cused not to of­fend while on bail, and not to in­ter­fere with the com­plainant or the pros­e­cu­tion wit­nesses. Le­sub­ula is to keep 50 me­tres away from the vic­tim at all times.

The case has been ad­journed to Novem­ber 8 for men­tion. JES­SICA GOUNDER Edited by Ranoba Baoa
