It is alleged that Dinono between January 1, 2012 and August 31, 2012 whilst being a clerical officer with the Ministry of Education, facilitated the processing of false payments amounting to $33,012 to Dynamic Solutions.

Then Dynamic Solutions Director Venktesh Naidu is charged with obtaining a financial advantage.

The state was represented by Police prosecutor Sergeant Luke Qerewaqa.
