The four escapees that were captured last Friday  failed to appear in court yesterday because they suffered injuries during their arrest, confirms Fiji Police Chief of Operations, ACP Rusiate Tudravu.

ACP Tudravu said the injuries were not been caused by violent beatings from the defence forces but is a result of resisting arrest where the the officers had to use reasonable force to capture the quartet.

He said some officials also sustained injuries while trying to capture the four on Snake Island because of the tough terrain.

The four inmates;  Solomoni Qurai, Tevita Sugu, Josaia Usumaki and Epeli Qaraniqio will remain under heavy police guard at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva until they are fit for interrogation.
