Two men were sentenced to three years imprisonment for manslaughter and abduction by the High Court in Suva today.

Koseni Sausau, 33 and Semiti Ravai, 38 were charged in relation to the death of a 32-year-old Sukul Deo on 17 October, 2009 with one count of manslaughter and one count of abduction.

Deo, who was believed to have worked with the two, was allegedly forcibly taken from his Nausori home by the two men as he celebrated Diwali with his family.

High Court Judge Justice Paul Madigan made the decision in light of the seriousness of the crime.

The court heard the duo disputed about the $500 from work where they used abduction to solve the dispute which resulted in Deo’s death in 2009.

Sausau and Ravai will have to serve 28 months before they are eligible for parole.
