Two orders that were filed by Opposition parliamentarian Isoa Tikoca ahead of the hearing proper were refused by the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

The case was heard before Magistrate Makereta Mua.

The first order was sought for the prosecution to further detail the particulars of the charge and the second was to request the use of projectors and other equipment to assist the defence in the hearing.

The hearing is set from November 14 to November 25.

Tikoca is charged by the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption 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 was adjourned to November 10 for mention.
