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 we’re 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.
