Fiji’s Suva High Court today deferred the case of four out of the five escapees that fled from the Naboro Medium Centre last month to 18 February next year.

This is because prosecution needs more time for consolidation proceedings.

The four escapees, Solomone Qurai, Tevita Sugu, Isoa Waqa and Jone Usumaki appeared before High Court Judge, Justice Salesi Temo.

Fifth escapee, Epeli Qaraniqio is still recovering in hospital.

Prosecution lawyer was also not able to confirm responses to the bail applications by Isoa Kubunalagi, Ifereimi Saubesa, Maika Mateyawa, Deshwar Kishore Dutt and Kunal Edwin Prasad which has now been deferred.

The five are accused of aiding prisoners, harbouring them and involvement in aggravated robberies.

Ruling on the bail applications will be made on 2 November.
