Five men appeared at the Magistrates Court in Suva today for aggravated robbery and harbouring escapees.

Rajeshwar Dutt, Kunal Prasad, Maika Mateyawa and Isoa Kubunalagi were charged with one count of aggravated robbery each.

Kubunalagi was also charged with one count of harbouring escapees with Iferemi Sauqesa.

The state prosecution asked Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili if the five could remain in police custody for further investigation as investigations is yet to be finalised.

The court also revoked the request of Mateyawa for a bail because  the offence was fresh.

Ratuvili ordered for the case to be transferred to the High Court with the five to appear together despite the nature of their offence being different.

The case has been adjourned to October 5, 2012.
