‘Dangerous’ prisoner who escaped custody arrested by police

    The prisoner who escaped from the Magistrate Court while he was in Police custody, was arrested by Police at around 4:00pm yesterday Monday 5 June 2017.

    Amoni Fifita was captured from an area near the village of Fatai and is remanded in custody to appear at the Magistrate Court later this week, Acting Chief Superintendent Tevita Vailea said.

    In January Police searched for Fifita after he and another prisoner escaped custody before allegedly robbing a shop owner at gun point.

    At the time Police had warned the public that Fifita and the prisoner were armed and dangerous.

    They were arrested two days later.

    Police would like to thank members of the public for the information and assistance provided during the search for the escaped prisoner.
