A Fiji military officer, Pita Matairavula, charged with sexual assault is today due in court to hear if he will be granted bail.
He was charged last month along with a soldier and three policemen over the alleged sexual assault of an escaped prisoner three years ago.
The incident was recorded in a video which drew international condemnation when it was put on the internet in 2013.
Mr Matairavula was arrested only last week and remanded in custody after he failed to attend two court hearings with the four co-accused in Suva.
Both the prosecution and the police have said he absconded and was harboured by the military.
The military has denied interfering in the police work.
Last week, it moved to hire three of the co-accused, who were suspended police officers, saying they had been abandoned.
Both the military leadership and the prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, have refused to condemn torture and vowed to stand by the suspects.
