Dakuidreketi, Bakani in court

FICAC will present more than 400 documents and produce 33 witnesses in the trial of Kalivati Bakani and Keni Dakuidreketi.

The two men have been charged with abuse of office and are alleged to have had dealings involving TLTB and Vanua Development and the purchase of a defunct software called MYSAP.

The court was told yesterday that the proposed agreed facts had been sent to the defence counsels but nothing had been agreed to with the trial due to start next month.

Mr Dakuidreketi's lawyer Wylie Clarke said they could not agree to anything until FICAC formalised the charge and particulars.

Mr Clarke said the charge referred to Mr Dakuidreketi as being a director of Vanua Development while the information filed by FICAC said he was a board member of TLTB.

He said FICAC had written a letter clarifying the situation but it had not been formalised in court. Therefore, he said they were in the dark on what path to take.

Justice Janaka Bandara told prosecution that Mr Dakuidreketi's case was being affected with FICAC not doing anything about it.

Mr Clarke was told to make the necessary application for formalising the facts by the end of the month while FICAC was given until June 5 to respond.

Trial has been set for June 23.
