Padarath in court

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Saturday, March 08, 2014

Businessman Benjamin Padarath was told by the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday to look for a new counsel so trial against him and Aseri Vakaloloma could proceed.

Padarath appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili and requested if the court could await the outcome of an appeal against the suspension from practice of his defence counsel Rajendra Chaudhry who is in Australia.

Mr Chaudhry was found guilty of one count of professional misconduct and one count of unsatisfactory professional conduct. His practising certificate has been suspended until 2017.

However the court told Mr Padarath to look for another counsel so they could proceed with the hearing.

It is alleged that between October 14 and October 31 in 2009, the men forged the Articles of Association of BECP Engineering Construction Fiji Ltd.

They allegedly did this by creating a page and altering the particulars of subscribers from Adishwar Padarath, of 57 Duncan Rd, Domain, Suva, to Voreqe Bainimarama, of 228 Ratu Sukuna Rd, Domain, Suva.

Mr Vakaloloma allegedly signed as a witness to the signature while Mr Padarath is alleged to have signed as one of the subscribers.
