Supermarket loses appeal

LAUTOKA-based Rajendra Foodtown has lost an appeal in the High Court in Lautoka.

The supermarket had appealed against a $10,000 fine imposed by the Lautoka Magistrates Court on October 28 last year after a company representative pleaded guilty to selling certain items at excessive prices.

The items included various stationery that were regulated under the Price Control Act of the Commerce Commission of Fiji.

High Court judge Justice Sudharshana De Silva ruled that the grounds on which the supermarket had appealed the fine were unfounded.

He said the sentencing magistrate had given one fifth of the maximum fine of $50,000 to the third time offender. He added that while the learned magistrate did not consider past cases, did not impose a harsh or excessive sentence on the accused.
