Woman In Human Trafficking Case To Front Court Today

A case of human trafficking allegedly involving 17 Fijian citizens is to be called to the High Court in Suva again today.

Seta Sanjana Ram, 31, appeared before Justice Daniel Goundar yesterday, but her case was stood down because of miscommunication between the court and the officers at the remand centre.

Ram’s case was called in before the scheduled time where she did not appear. She appeared before Justice Goundar after her case was called in where Justice Goundar adjourned her case to today for first call.

Ram is charged with trafficking in person, obtaining property by deception and money laundering jointly charged with her sister Geeta Anjana Chandar, who is residing in Australia.

The alleged offences took place between February 12, 2014 and March 20, 2017 and involved a sum of $52,142 from 17 complainants.

Both women are charged with 35 counts including two counts of money laundering where Chandar is alleged to have disposed $79,991.40 into a Bank South Pacific account and Ram allegedly disposed $2525 into two Australia and New Zealand bank accounts that were the proceeds of crime.
