THE former principal information officer for the Ministry of Works, Transport and Public Utilities, Sainiana Radrodro, pleaded not guilty in court yesterday.

Mrs Radrodro appeared before Magistrate Yohan Liyanage at the Suva Magistrates Court facing charges of obtaining financial advantage by deception on 11 separate occasions from 2010 to 2011, contrary to section 318 of the Crimes Decree Number 44 of 2009.

In all counts, Mrs Radrodro is alleged to have requested from others money totalling $8260 on 11 separate occasions by using the minister's name.

Mrs Radrodro also applied for a bail variation because she wanted to travel to New Zealand on Friday for her son's admission and orientation at a university.

Her bail conditions state she cannot leave the country because of a court-issued stop departure order.

A ruling on her bail variation will be delivered today.

Mrs Radrodro is represented by Filimoni Vosarogo of Mamlakah Lawyers.
