The Suva Magistrates court has ordered police prosecution to provide and serve medical reports to the nine men who allegedly violently attacked police officers in Mead Road, Suva in August this year.
Jone Vakarisi, Tevita Bulanaivalu, Ledua Gudru, Sekove Serukalou, Jese Sorovi, Toni Sokoiwasa, Chanel Antonio and Mark Ross and Semisi Rabakoko appeared in the Suva Magistrates court yesterday.
The nine complained in court that the police prosecution failed to furnish them with their medical reports and second phase of disclosures.
The nine have been charged with failing to produce driving license, failing to obey traffic direction, dangerous driving, and criminal intimidation, damaging property, resisting arrest and driving a motor vehicle without license.
The incident happened near the Mead Road Housing complex in Nabua, Suva in August.
It is alleged that the suspects attacked three police constables and a special constable who were on patrol in Nabua.
It is alleged the officers saw the occupants in two vehicles acting in a suspicious manner and they approached the vehicle and saw the men were armed.
The suspects then sped from the scene and the officers chased them to Mead Road Housing where they blocked the police from the front and back with their vehicles and then struck the police car with iron rods and stones while the officers were inside.
The matter has been adjourned to next Friday.
