Ratu Isoa Plea Next Month

The Opposition whip, Ratu Isoa Tikoca, is expected to take his plea next month.

Ratu Isoa appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court before Magistrate Makereta Mua, with his lawyer Faizal Koya yesterday.

The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption had charged the Member of Parliament for failing to declare liabilities contrary to Section 24 (2) (a) (viii) of Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree 2013.

The Prosecution submitted an application to amend the particulars of the charge whereby they removed ‘Permanent Secretary’ and replaced it with ‘Supervisor of Elections’.

However, the particulars of the charges were not read out in court yesterday.

Second phase of disclosures were also served by FICAC and the Defence requested time to go through the bundle of documents.

The matter has been adjourned to June 22 for Ratu Isoa to take his plea. Bail has been extended.
