Assault accused granted bail

A Nadi man was produced in the Nadi Magistrates Court on Monday to answer to a serious assault charge against him.

Roland Sefarano was alleged to have been involved in the alleged assault of two policemen who had confronted him for not wearing a mask.

A video of the alleged incident went viral on social media.

Mr Sefarano was released on a $500 bail bond and was warned not to interfere with witnesses and not to reoffend.

Defence lawyer Aman-Ravindra Singh said his client needed bail because he had a wife and children to look after.

The accused will take his plea on the next listed court date of December 14.
