Court

Maika Sivo cleared to fly, pleads not guilty

January 3, 2020 1:48 pm
The travel ban placed on Fiji Bati and Paramatta Eels flyer Maika Sivo has been lifted today by the Nadi Magistrates Court.

The travel ban placed on Fiji Bati and Paramatta Eels flyer Maika Sivo has been lifted today by the Nadi Magistrates Court.

26-year-old Sivo is currently charged with 1 count of indecent assault.

While delivering his ruling, Magistrate Peni Dalituicama stated that trial date, in this case, is likely to be at the end of the year and so to continue to impose the stop departure order on Sivo pending trial when his employment is at stake will be unjust, unfair and serves no justice at all.

Magistrate Dalituicama also says that Sivo is not a flight risk as he remains a citizen of Fiji.

He stresses that Sivo will be in Australia because of his contract with the Eels club as opposed to someone who intentionally absconds to avoid being answerable to the law.

However, Sivo has been informed to surrender his passport the day after he arrives in Sydney.

Magistrate Dalituicama also states that they are satisfied with the assurance given by Mark O’Neil the General Manager of the Paramatta Eels that Sivo will be available to attend his court cases when needed.

Two sureties were also provided by Maika Sivo.

The NRL star winger is alleged to have indecently assaulted a female staff of a resort on Denarau.

The incident is alleged to have taken place on Boxing Day.

Meanwhile, Sivo has also pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The case will be called again on the 17th February and Sivo has also been excused to attend it.

Sivo is expected to fly out of the country either tonight or tomorrow.
