1 case to save cost and time

Mere Naleba
Friday, November 30, 2012

TWO former civil servants will have their cases consolidated after Magistrate Janaka Bandara allowed a FICAC application on the basis that it would save cost, time and resources.

Saiyad Aziz and Kameli Yacalevu were employed by the Public Works Department when they allegedly committed the offence of soliciting and accepting an advantage.

The court heard that on March 4, 2010, Mr Aziz, while being employed as a prescribed officer and attached with the PWD as a machinist, took $300 from a Nitinesh Naidu.

Mr Yacalevu allegedly accepted an advantage of $150 on the same day. Both offences took place in Suva.

Magistrate Bandara allowed the cases to be heard on the same date as the same set of witnesses would testify in both cases.

The case has been adjourned to February 6 next year.
