Kumar Convicted Of Money Laundering

A former officer of Registrar of Titles was convicted of money laundering by the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

Nitesh Kumar with another, between April 22, 2009 and April 12, 2010 in Suva, received the sum of $9888.67 being the proceeds of crime, through his ANZ account knowing or ought to reasonably know that the money was derived directly or indirectly from some form of unlawful activity.

Kumar had pleaded not guilty, with reasons to why the court proceeded with a hearing and he elected to remain silent while the prosecution called three witnesses.

Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne while delivering the facts of the case said that Kumar was acquainted with the other person who was a former employee of ANZ and they maintained a regular contact with each other during the course of their employment.

The court has been adjourned to July 8 for Kumar’s sentencing.
