October 14, 2019 6:43 am
The bus driver who was involved in an accident that claimed the lives of two children in Lakena Number 2 hill, Nausori is expected to appear at the Nausori Magistrates court today for his bail hearing.
46-year-old Shalen Jattan is charged with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning death, two counts of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm and one count of dangerous driving.
It is alleged that the bus driven by Jattan tumbled down the hill and flipped over on Wednesday last week.
He was produced in the Nausori Magistrates court on Saturday in a special court sitting where the prosecution had objected to his bail saying that the case is of national interest and the charge against Jattan is serious.
