The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption has sought more time to compile second phase disclosures in the case of former Chief Ethical Standard Unit Officer and the Director Intelligence, Compliance and Investigations respectively at Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) yesterday.

Shameem Khan, charged by Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC), appeared before Magistrate Deepika Prakash.

He is charged with one count of abuse of office and one count of general dishonesty causing a loss. For the abuse of office charge, it is alleged that Khan, between January 1, 2016 and May 5, 2017, while being employed as the Chief Ethical Standard Unit Officer and the Director Intelligence, Compliance and Investigations respectively at Fiji Revenue and Customs Services (FRCS) made an arbitrary act for the gain in abuse of his office. This was preparing an investigation report with false contents and preventing FRCS in obtaining revenue of $4,118,994.08.

For the general dishonesty causing a loss charge, it is alleged that between January 1, 2016 and May 5, 2017, Khan dishonestly caused a loss to the FRCS of a sum of $4,118,994.08 and he knew or believed that the loss would occur or there was a substantial risk of loss occurring.

The accused’s bail was extended and the matter was adjourned for mention to February 12, 2019.
