Chinese national Bi Baodang was produced in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday charged with attempted murder.

He appeared before Resident Magistrate Indula Ratnayake.

Mr Baodang told the court it was an issue between two Chinese people and asked if the matter could be settled out of court.

Mr Ratnayake said charges had been filed.

The Police prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that it was an indictable offence and the accused still lived on the fishing vessel owned by the victim, who was still admitted at the CWM hospital.

The matter was transferred to the High Court and will be called on August 19.

The accused was remanded in custody.
