Dakuidreketi trial: Judge sums up evidence

By SHALVEEN CHAND
Friday, August 01, 2014

Update: 2:09PM HIGH Court judge Justice Janaka Bandara summed up the evidence in the trial of businessman Keni Dakuidreketi to the five assessors this morning.

Mr Dakuidreketi is charged with five counts of abuse of office. 

He is alleged to have authorised the use of money kept in the extinct mataqali fund of Native Land Trust Board and government grants so money could be given to Ballu Khan's company Pacific Connex.

Mr Dakuidreketi was chairman of Vanua Development Corporation, the business arm of NLTB.

The assessors have retired and have a lot of evidence to consider before giving their opinion.

Co-accused Kalivati Bakani pleaded guilty to abuse of office and will be sentenced at a later date.
