Chaudhry to travel

Mere Naleba
Saturday, January 19, 2013

HIGH Court judge Justice Paul Madigan yesterday approved an application by Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry to travel overseas.

Mr Chaudhry's lawyer, Anand Singh, informed the court his client would like to travel to New Zealand on January 26 to meet a Queen's Counsel who is expected to be part of the defence team.

Mr Singh had named QC Peter Williams to assist him in defending Mr Chaudhry against the foreign exchange charges.

Mr Chaudhry was initially charged with five counts of money laundering and three of breaching the Exchange Control Act, but on July 25, last year High Court judge Justice Daniel Gounder ruled the five counts of money laundering charges quashed.

Mr Chaudhry is expected to return to the country on February 3.
