Accused told to hand in passport

A WOMAN was yesterday told not to leave the country after pleading not guilty in Rockhampton District Court to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Brisbane woman Nasee Webber, 27, is charged with causing the death of a woman, 27, in Rockhampton on January 20, 2007.

She was ordered by Judge Grant Britton to surrender her passport to the Mount Ommaney police station in Brisbane by 4pm on Monday.

He granted her bail but ruled she can't go within 500 metres of any international airport or shipping port.

Kannika Kahunwong died on January 20 when she was thrown from the ute Webber was driving, which rolled when she tried to overtake another vehicle.

Ms Kahunwong, who died at the scene, was a passenger in the Mazda utility when Webber is believed to have lost control while attempting to overtake another vehicle about 10 kilometres from Rockhampton.

Webber was taken to Rockhampton Base Hospital with chest, pelvic and back injuries and was later transferred to Royal Brisbane Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

A District Court jury will decide Webber's case following a trial on a date to be set.

Her matter was adjourned yesterday to the criminal court call-over in Rockhampton District Court, at which stage a date will be set for a pre-trial hearing.
