During the bail hearing yesterday, the defense counsel pleaded for bail, saying his clients were allegedly assaulted by police when they were taken to the Nabua Police Station last Friday.

Puamau granted bail for the two men in the sum of $1000 each, non-cash.

They were advised not to miss court dates, not to re-offend and not to interfere with State witnesses.

The matter will be called again on August 15th.
