Two men alleged to have stolen a total of $113,000 and assorted items from a complex in Raiwaqa appeared in the Suva Magistrate’s court in the last hour.
Twenty-six-year old Taitusi Qoli and forty-five-year-old Joapa Tovatova have each been charged with one count of aggravated robbery.
The two appeared before Magistrate Waleen George.
It is alleged the pair robbed two employees at Damodar City’s Western Union branch in Suva on the 15th of September this year.
The court heard that only $2000 has been recovered.
The court also heard Qoli has breached a suspended sentence handed to him last year.
The two have been remanded in custody and the matter has been transferred to the High court.
The case will be called on 24th November.
