The Minister for Waterways, Mahendra Reddy, will ap­pear in the High Court in Suva tomorrow, February 15, 2018 for his appeal case filed by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

FICAC appealed Reddy’s bribery acquittal, which was delivered by Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili on December 1, 2017.

Reddy, whose presence was ex­cused on the last court date, was represented by private lawyer Dev­anesh Sharma.

FICAC lawyer Rashmi Aslam re­quested Justice Vincent Perera for more time to go through the court records thoroughly to ascertain whether it is correct or not.

Mr Sharma did not object to the same and indicated that it would be the preferable course of action adding that on the next court date directions could be sought for law­yers to file their submissions ac­cordingly.

The case was then adjourned to February 15, 2018 for mention.
