Suva lawyer, Shazran Abdul Lateef and Zoe Moore who were allegedly found with drugs have been granted bail by Suva Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa.

In his bail ruling delivered in the last hour, Magistrate Boseiwaqa said the prosecution submitted that Moore and Lateef have reoffended while on bail.

Magistrate Boseiwaqa noted that both of them have not absconded bail.

The Magistrate also said the court's diary is booked out and both Lateef and Moore could be in remand for 1 year before the trial.

Magistrate Boseiwaqa also highlighted concerns raised by Lateef and Moore about the conditions of the Suva Remand Centre.

Lateef had raised through his lawyer, Filimoni Vosarogo that he had to be moved to the Infirmary because of his old age last night.

Moore had raised through her Legal Aid lawyer that she slept with six other people on the floor and they all used one blanket.

Lateef and Moore have both been granted bail with strict bail conditions.

Those conditions include cash bail of $500 each, two sureties each with a surety bond of $500 and report to the Raiwaqa Police Station on the first Saturday of every month.

They are also on a curfew which is from 6pm to 6am daily.

Lateef and Moore are both charged with one count each of being found in possession of 7.89 grams of methamphetamine, one count each of being found in possession  of 12.49 grams of cocaine and one count each of being found in possession of 2.5 grams of marijuana.

They were arrested following a raid at a home at Nailuva Road on Sunday.

This is the fourth case where Lateef has been charged and produced in court after being allegedly found with drugs. He was also granted bail in the previous cases.

The case has been adjourned to 12th September this year.
