A 42-YEAR-old man of Waibau in Naitasiri has been charged with two counts of alleged money laundering.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed this yesterday saying the alleged act was committed between August of 2010 and 2012.
He said the man allegedly deposited more than $200,000 in his ANZ bank account and $94,000 in another account held with Bank South Pacific.
"The man is alleged to have worked with an accomplice who was a friend and a former employee of the iTaukei Land Trust Board," Insp Sokomuri said. He said they started their investigations following a complaint received from TLTB last year.
"The investigations started last year and the man was charged on Friday," Insp Sokomuri said.
He however, declined to release further details of the alleged incident pending investigations.
But he added the man would be produced in court soon.
