Man accused of assault and torture allowed to go to work

SPECIAL conditions placed on a man accused of assaulting and torturing his partner have been revoked.

Caine Aaron Zagami, 20, was released on bail in April after being charged with three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count of torture.

But his bail came with conditions that he would only leave his Leichhardt residence to go to work.

His matter was listed for sentencing in Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday, but was adjourned pending additional medical reports.

Defence barrister Matthew Fairclough requested that in the meantime "the oppressive" conditions Mr Zagami had been living under for the past four months be revoked.

The request was not opposed by the Crown and was granted meaning Mr Zagami is no longer confined to his home by court order.

He is due back in court on September 12 to face three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count of torture. The last count may be disputed.
