Prosecution will file amended charges for three women from China at Nadi Magistrates Court this Friday.

The women, Huang Xiaoyan, Wen Rong and Xia Wu, who are charged in relation to the alleged theft of more than $150,000, will now appear before Magistrate Mohamed Azar on amalgamated charges.

While making the application for amalgamated charges, the Police prosecutor Sergeant Francis Bale told the court that two of the three women would appear in another case as there were two complainants.

Therefore, for the first matter the three will appear on Friday with charges amended and for second two will appear on same charge.

Magistrate Azar told Sergeant Bale and the defence lawyer, Shailend Krishna, that the charges laid against the three accused differed from their summary of facts.

He said that according to the summary of facts, the charges should have been obtaining property by deception.

He advised the prosecution to revise the charges.

Mr Azar told prosecution to convert the amount listed in other currencies in Fijian dollars to avoid any further misunderstandings.

He also ordered the prosecution to disclose the total amount of alleged theft.

They are in remand.
