May 3, 2021 4:59 pm
Four Fiji Airways staff have today appeared in the Nadi Magistrate Court after being charged for breaching the health restrictions in place.
They are all flight attendants and are charged with one count of failure to comply with the health restrictions.
It was heard in court that last Saturday the four, Jehoshaphat Ephraim, Desmond Chand, Luke Otterbech and Susan Prasad, were alleged to have been drinking at one of their colleague’s home in Legalega, Nadi.
Under the current health restrictions, there is a ban on social gathering due to the local outbreak of COVID-19.
The four have also been bailed and the matter will be recalled on the 4th of July.
Meanwhile, a 19-year-old man appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court this afternoon breaching the same health restrictions.
Apete Mateyawa was found loitering at Kaloa street, Kinoya yesterday afternoon without a valid reason.
He has been found guilty and was ordered to pay a fine of $400 by the 31st of this month or will spend 13-days behind bars.
