THE trial of a former Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority officer began on Monday before High Court judge Justice Paul Madigan.
Robin Surya appeared on money laundering charges.
The State on Monday called Jasmine Prasad, a clerical officer at FRCA at the time of the alleged incident.
Ms Prasad told the court her responsibility was to enter all tax return forms left at the authority counter or forms received by mail.
She said at times senior officers would return tax return forms that had mistakes on them after assessing the forms.
Ms Prasad said in her examination-in-chief that at times Mr Surya, being the senior tax assessor, would return forms and ask her to lodge the details into the system.
She said because she was just a "newcomer" in the organisation, she did not question Mr Surya because of his seniority.
"The forms he returned to me were not left with other forms to be passed to the Data Entry Unit, he would collect them again as soon as the details, which are the TIN and revenue number, were entered into the system," she said.
The trial continues this morning.
