Opposition Parliamentarian MP Ratu Isoa Tikoca’s lawyer, Kitione Vuataki, has filed a motion seeking two orders ahead of the hearing.

The matter was called before Magistrate Makereta Mua at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

The first order was for the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption to detail the particulars of the charge.

The second order was a request to use projectors and other equipment to assist the defence during the hearing.

FICAC lawyer Laite Bokini-Ratu has sought time to file a response for the first order, but did not object to the second order.

The hearing for the case is set to start from November 14 to November 25 this year.

Tikoca is charged by FICAC for failing to declare his liabilities before the 2014 General Elections.

It is alleged that he failed to declare his liabilities contrary to Section 24 (2) (a) (viii) and section 24(5) of the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree No. 4 of 2013.

The case has been adjourned to October 11, for a response from the State.
