A defence witness told Suva Magistrates Court yesterday that Mosese Bulitavu did not tell him to spray paint anti-Government graffiti.

Usaia Koroi,  then an employee of Worker Film in Raiwaqa, said his operations manager, Eparama Rokotakala, told him to do it to help restore democracy in 2011.

Koroi admitted he was not happy with the Government.

He said he, Rokotakala and another employee, Eroni Takape, spray painted billboards in Nausori.

Koroi also told the court that he and his co-workers wrote seditious words on their own accord.

 

Charged

He was giving evidence in a case where Bulitavu and Jagath Karunaratne are charged with seditious comments in public in 2011. They have pleaded not guilty.

Koroi was responding to questions by defence lawyer, Aman Ravindra Singh.

The trial continues today.
