Court News in Brief
Lolohea to pay
EMPLOYMENT recruiter Timoci Lolohea appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Lolohea's company Meridian Security Services was responsible for recruiting thousands of Fiji nationals in early 2000 for jobs in the Arab Gulf States.
The court heard Lolohea owed a large sum of money to a complainant, who had originally filed the case with the Small Claims Tribunal. It was later referred to the Magistrates Court which ordered the accused to pay up. However, Lolohea said he was not able to do so but told the court he would pay at the end of the month.
The court then ordered him to sign a bail bond of $1000.
