Four out of the five escapees that fled from the Naboro Medium facility two weeks ago failed to appear in the Magistrates Court in Suva today as they are still medically unfit.
Solomoni Qurai, Tevita Sugu, Josaia Usumaki and Epeli Qaraniqio were apprehended by the defence forces on Snake Island off Lami while Isoa Waqa was recaptured in Laqere, Nasinu.
Police prosecution informed Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili that the four are still unfit to attend court and needed more time to recover before appearing.
CM Ratuvili ordered the prosecution to present the reviewed medical reports of the four to the Court on October 5 stating their current condition.
The case has been adjourned to October 8 for mention.
