Court warning

Shalveen Chand

A STERN warning was issued by the High Court to all employed by the State or its corporate companies as four men were sent to jail for three years for stealing water meters and selling them to scrap metal dealers.

Josese Caginiwalala, 40, Sunia Malewa, 53, Mosese Tauna, 44, and Sanaila Naivana, 54, were convicted of one count of aggravated burglary and one of theft.

The four systematically broke into the Reservoir Rd deport storeroom and over six months stole 613 new water meters worth more than $100,000 to sell to scrap metal dealers.

Justice Salesi Temo said this case was a warning to all State employees who get caught stealing that if they front the court then a custodial sentence was warranted. He told the four men their employment contracts required them to be true and honest but they turned around and stole from Water Authority of Fiji.
