Chand Fronts Court For Abuse Of Office

A man charged with a count each for abuse of office and general dishonesty obtaining a gain, appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court on Monday.

The court heard that Shanon Shahil Chand between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015 whilst being employed in the public service as a technician at the Information Technology Unit at the Judicial Department made an arbitrary act for gain.

It is alleged that he used the Vodafone Fiji subsidy given to the High Court of Fiji to acquire Samsung mobile phones for the purpose of his personal gain, which are acts prejudicial to the rights of the judicial department.

For the second count, it is alleged that Chand between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015 with the intention of dishonestly obtaining a gain, acquired Samsung mobile phones for his personal gain and benefit from the Vodafone Fiji subsidy given to the High Court of Fiji under the Vodafone Network Service contract.

Magistrate Waleen George granted Chand a $1000 bail bond whereby he is not to offend, he is not to interfere with the prosecution witnesses and he is to report to the Nabua Police Station every Saturday between 6am and 6pm.

The case has been adjourned to July 22.
