SODELPA Member of Parliament Peceli Vosanibola will have his trial begin on August 15.

Vosanibola is charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) with one count of giving false information to a public servant and one count of obtaining financial advantage.

Vosanibola is alleged to have falsely stated that his permanent place of residence was in Navuloa Village, Bureta, Ovalau, Lomaiviti, and allegedly obtained $19,749.50 between August 2019 and March 2020.

It is alleged that the MP breached the Parliamentary Remuneration Act of 2014 when he claimed travel and accommodation allowances, he was not entitled to.

The allegations were brought by the former Parliament secretary-general, Viniana Namosimalua.

The trial will begin on August 15 and conclude on August 31.

The matter is adjourned for trial.
