Dhirendra Pratap and Peni Mau

The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) will be filing in written submissions on its appeal against the acquittal of Tevita Peni Mau and Dhirendra Pratap.

The High Court in Suva had acquitted Pratap and Mau, former Post Fiji Limited executives, of charges of abuse of office and extortion by Public Officers respectively in 2013.

Both the respondents were present before Justice Suresh Chandra and represented by Barbara Malimali. Ms Malimali said that FICAC should withdraw the appeal.

Rashmi Aslam appeared on behalf of FICAC and responded that it would not withdraw the appeal and continue and will get opinion from the Court on legal matters it argues.

In view of the above, Justice Chandra gave FICAC four weeks to file in the written submissions.

The matter has been adjourned to March 2 for mention. FICAC
