The case of two men charged with ar­son and the mur­der of four el­derly women will now be called at the High Court in Labasa on May 18.

Sai­mum Dean, 40 and Zuhair Fra­haad Dean, 19, are with one count of ar­son, four counts of mur­der and one count of at­tempted mur­der each.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred on in Be­nau, Labasa, on April 30. The case was trans­ferred from the Mag­is­trate Courts in Labasa to High Court on May 5. Their lawyer, Ami Kohli, was sup­posed to file a bail ap­pli­ca­tion yes­ter­day. How­ever, since there was no judge and due to COVID-19 re­stric­tions the case has been shifted to next week.
