FORMER principal information officer at the Ministry of Works, Transport and Public Utilities Sainiana Radrodro withdrew her bail variation application at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.
Aseri Vakaloloma, who made an appearance for Mrs Radrodro on behalf of her lawyer Filimone Vosarogo, informed the court that it was upon his client's instruction to do so.
The bail ruling was set to be delivered by Magistrate Yohan Liyanage.
Mr Vakaloloma said she was withdrawing her application because her son had already left the country for New Zealand. The sole reason for travelling was to take him across for admission and orientation at a university.
FICAC senior legal officer Rashmi Aslam said he had emphasised to defence that it would be futile to make such an application considering the date of Ms Radrodro's son's departure was imminent to the time they had intended to make the application.
Mr Liyanage granted the withdrawal application even after preparing the ruling.
