Illness Forces Baba Case Adjournment

Illness has forced the adjournment of the case involving Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) member Jale Baba to January 30, 2019, for plea.

Baba is charged by Fiji Independent Com- mission Against Corruption (FICAC) with one count of making a false statement.

It is alleged that between August 1, 2018, and October 15, 2018, in Suva, Baba made false statements on social media by pub- lishing falsified voter lists and other false information related to the voter lists on Fa- cebook, which he knew to be false or had no reason to believe to be true.

Baba’s case was called before Suva Magis- trate Liyanage Wickramasekara yesterday, but he failed to appear due to his medical reasons.

On the last date the case was called, Octo- ber 31, 2018, Baba’s lawyer Lynda Tabuya told the court her client suffered from stroke and was not able to speak or move.
