The case against Benjamin Padarath and lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma was adjourned by the Suva Magistrates Court to July 24, 2018.

The case was called before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili yesterday, however the ruling was not ready.

Both men are charged by Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption on one count of forgery.

It is alleged that between October 14, 2009 and December 31, 2009, with intent to defraud they forged a document namely the Articles of Association for BECP Engineering Construction Fiji Limited. This was by making a false page 27 of the said Articles of Association by altering the particulars of subscribers from Adishwar Padarath of 57 Duncan Road, Domain, Suva to Voreqe Bainimarama of 228 Ratu Sukuna Road, Domain, Suva.

Vakaloloma had allegedly placed his signature as the witness to the signature of purported subscribers and Padarath had placed his signature as one of the subscribers.

Both men are on bail.
