Defence seeks particulars

Shalveen Chand

ORAL submissions will be presented to the court by lawyers for businessman Keni Dakuidreketi after FICAC maintained it will not make any more clarification on the particulars given in the disclosures.

Keni Dakuidreketi and his co-accused Kalivati Bakani are charged with abuse of office in relation to alleged questionable dealings involving TLTB and Vanua Development Corporation and the purchase of a defunct software called MYSAP.

Mr Dakuidreketi's lawyer, Wylie Clarke, said FICAC had not clarified his client's actual offence thus the need for clarification on the particulars.

Justice Janaka Bandara told FICAC prosecutors the defence had a right to know the particulars of the offence.

In his written submission Mr Clarke stated they would not proceed to trial if this matter was not clarified.

FICAC prosecution team stated they would rely on a lot of evidence to which Justice Bandara replied that particulars had to be clarified before the trial starts.

Submissions will be made this Thursday.
