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.

Beggar in court

A WOMAN appeared in court charged with begging illegally in Suva.

Gyan Wati pleaded guilty when she appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The court ordered Wati to look for a job and warned her not to be seen begging in the city again.

Police prosecutor Kalara Naisamu said the woman was discharged conditionally and she would be on probation with conditions.
