A 34-year-old man who allegedly murdered his wife in Walu Bay in 2019 has been granted bail by High Court Judge Justice Salesi Temo.

Luke Nasetava allegedly stabbed his wife at the headquarters of a multinational company in Walu Bay in September 2019 when she refused to speak to him.

The trial will start next Monday.

Nasetava has been released on strict bail conditions.

Justice Temo released Nasetava on bail after being informed by defence lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo that he still has not been able to obtain instructions from his client because the Fiji Corrections Service has not allowed access.

Vosarogo also told the court that Nasetava has been in remand for more than 2 years.
