Court Orders Accused To Stay In Fiji During Trial

Director of Tebara Halal Meats Mohammed Janif charged with theft of nearly $2 million belonging to the company

 

Suva High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo has ordered the director of a business firm charged with three counts of theft not to leave the country till the case is completed.

Director of Tebara Halal Meats Mohammed Janif is charged with three counts of theft amounting to nearly $2 million belonging to the company.

The prosecution has yet to file information and disclosures as they are still deciding whether to amend the charge to money laundering or to leave it as theft due to the amount alleged to have been stolen by Janif.

Justice Temo said: “If the charge is theft then the file will go back to the Magistrates Court unless the charge is changed to money laundering; to run in High Court.”

The incident is alleged to have happened on June 29.

The court has been adjourned to September 2 for the State prosecutors to decide whether or not the charges are to be amended.
