Alleged Money Laundering Case Gets High Court Transfer

A man charged with money laundering had his case transferred to the High Court in Suva yesterday.

The accused, Savenaca Batibawa, appeared before Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne on Thursday for 39 counts of alleged money laundering.

Prosecution Mahzabeen Khan had filed an application for the matter to be transferred to High Court because it was a serious case and had to be consolidated with another related matter.

Time was sought by the defence lawyer, Tobia Ravuniwa, who submitted yesterday that he had no objection to the transfer

The matter has been transferred and would be called on May 1 for first call.

Prosecution would be filing an application for the matter to be consolidated with the related matter before the High Court in Suva.

Meanwhile, the accused is on bail under strict conditions.
