Suva lawyer, Aseri Vakaloloma again stressed in the Suva Magistrates court today that his clients Reverend Manasa Lasaro and Reverend Tomasi Kanailagi are not fit to stand trial.
Lasaro, Kanailagi, Ame Tugaue and the late Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu were charged with allegedly organizing and participating in a meeting in breach of the Public Emergency Regulation in 2011.
Vakaloloma says both Lasaro and Kanailagi are heart patients and will not be able to stand trial.
He told the court that Lasaro is not fit enough to walk.
Vakaloloma further stated that the state counsel could have withdrawn the charges as it’s not a serious case.
The state counsel then highlighted that they intend to proceed with the case as it is been dragging for long.
The matter has been adjourned to the 12th of next month. Source: Fijivillage News, 29/10/2015
