A woman charged in relation to the alleged use of Fiji National Provident Fund members’ disaster assistance was granted bail by the Suva Magistrate’s Court.

Rachael Likutabua Matakibau, a former customer service officer for the FNPF, is charged with four counts of obtaining property by deception.

She appeared before Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage who has granted a surety bail of $2000 each for the two sureties.

Police Prosecutor Corporal Luke Qeveiwaqa did not object to bail but asked the court to give the accused strict bail conditions such as to present two sureties, not to interfere with the witnesses, not to offend, not to leave her current residence without informing the court and to surrender all travel documents.

Corporal Qeveiwaqa sought time from the court to prepare for the second phase of disclosures to send to defence and to amend the charges for the fourth count.

The court has been adjourned to July 13.
