DEFENCE lawyer of former spokeswoman of the Department of Works Sainiana Radrodro has asked the court to allocate another mention date because he was only made known of the case yesterday.

Ms Radrodro has engaged the services of Suva lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo in her case against the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

Ms Radrodro, who is alleged to have obtained financial advantage on 11 separate occasions from 2010 to 2011, was previously represented by Shekinah Law.

Yesterday, Ms Radrodro was expected to take a plea but Mr Vosarogo informed the court that they needed another mention date to be allocated for plea. He said he had not perused all the disclosures.

FICAC lawyer Rashmi Aslam had no objections to Mr Vosarogo's request.

Mr Vosarogo also informed the court of his client's request to travel to New Zealand on Friday because Ms Radrodro's eldest son had been accepted by a university in New Zealand.

He told the court that Ms Radrodro needed to accompany her son to be in time for orientation on February 11.
