Alleged U.S Jobs Recruiter Remains In Custody

A woman accused of allegedly deceiving seven people into believing that she was an employment agent arranging jobs in the United States of America was remanded in custody yesterday.

Pijila Vularewa appeared before Magistrate Chaitanya Lakshman charged with seven counts of obtaining financial advantage by deception.

It is alleged that Vularewa told people that she was an agent arranging jobs in the US and that she could secure jobs for them.

Seven victims allegedly paid her the initial amount of $38 each and were expected to pay a sum of $5000 each.

The case has been adjourned to February 1, 2019, for Vularewa to file a proper bail application and for her plea to be taken.

Magistrate Lakshman said he was remanding her in custody because of the nature of her case and because it was in the public interest.

Police prosecutor Constable Siteri Nakai told the court that Vularewa had cases of a similar nature pending in the Labasa court.
