Toga Takes Ministry, PS, A-G To Court

A former Fiji Revenue and Customs Service senior investigator has filed an application for leave for a Judicial Review against the “No Jab, No Job” policy.

As such, Vasiti Toga took Minister for Employment, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, and the Attorney General to court.

The matter was called before Chief Justice Kamal Kumar at the High Court in Suva yesterday.

The lawyer from the Attorney-General’s office sought for a further seven days to file their affidavit in opposition while Ms Toga’s lawyer Aman Ravindra-Singh sought for 28 days thereafter to file his affidavit in reply.

Mr Ravindra-Singh told the court that he was seeking an early hearing date, however, Chief Justice Kumar said there were other three matters before the High Court similar in nature which were coming up for mention later this month.

Mr Ravindra-Singh told the court that this case was different as the case was of Judicial Review to look at the Regulation and Constitution.

However, Chief Justice Kumar said the other three matters were of similar grounds and adjourned the matter for mention on December 16 to fix a hearing date.
