No jail for Fifita over Bali drama
BRISBANE has all but confirmed David Fifita paid to secure his release from a Bali police cell following accusations he assaulted a nightclub security guard.
The teenage NRL star returned to Australia early yesterday to be greeted by mother Gwen and Broncos chief executive Paul White after spending three days in a Kuta police station.
White said the club had not paid compensation to facilitate Fifita’s release but alluded to a private financial arrangement as part of a “peace agreement” with the security guard when facing potential jail time.
“Any compensation that was paid was agreed upon by David’s legal representative over there and David himself,” White said. “That’s something between David and the alleged victim. These agreements are part of these types of incidents, the settlement of these type of incidents, and they do involve an agreement between two parties.”
