A Marist Brothers High School student has been charged with two counts of assault for his role in two separate street fights involving students of Marist and Suva Grammar School.

Varasiko Saverio, 18, appeared before Magistrate Janak Bandara at the Suva Magistrates Court this morning charged with two counts of assaults on two separate occasions. Saverio was represented by the Legal Aid commission.

He was granted bail to the sum of $200 and will reappear in court on October 17. Two witnesses who are also students of Suva Grammar will also be in attendance.

Also present in court was the principal of Marist, John Atalifo and the parents of the accused.

Atalifo told the court that they had reconciled with SGS and assured Magistrate Bandara that this issue will not occur again. Saverio’s parents were also advised to ensure that the incident is not repeated.

They were also told not to interfere with the two witnesses.
