Two men were this morning acquitted by the High Court in Lautoka for charges of abducting a girl under 18 years old with intent to have carnal knowledge and defilement of a girl between thirteen and sixteen years of age.

The court heard that both men were attached to the Fiji Police Force, they were suspended because of the charges and are seeking the Court for an acquittal order to rejoin the force.

The court also heard the men would not be able to rejoin the force if there is no order of acquittal made.

Prosecution submitted to court that no appeal has been made against the order of discharge by the Magistrates court and they would not be inclined to re-open the case.

Prosecution had no objection to the acquittal order.
