THE Magistrates Court in Suva has cancelled two bench warrants issued for the arrest of a former businessman.

Jai Ram Bhai is charged with 15 counts of fraud-related offences.

He is charged with obtaining financial advantage, dishonestly causing a loss and obtaining money by false pretences.

Mr Bhai is alleged to have been operating a visa and marriage bureau and had taken money from people in exchange for visas overseas.

Mr Bhai told the court he was present in a different court when his name was called. He said he was always present for his case.

The prosecution did not object to this.

Apart from the criminal charges, Mr Bhai is also the defendant in a number of civil cases.

Orders have been issued against Mr Bhai to repay the people he owes.

His case will be called again next month.
