IQBAL Khan, the lawyer for the former secretary of the Independent Legal Services Commission, yesterday asked the court for time to respond to prosecution submissions on the disclosure of documents.

Afrana Rahiman Nisha appeared before Magistr­a­te Shageeth Somaratne at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday, charged with seven counts of falsi­f­ication of do­c­uments and th­­ree counts of obtaining a financial adv­a­­­­ntage. The of­f­ences took place between 2012 and 2014.

It is alleged Ms Nisha dishonestly falsifi­ed six Bank of Baroda ch­eques amounting to $13,599.10 by forging signa­tures of the Solicitor-Ge­n­eral of Fiji, Sharvada Sh­a­rma, and the payees and obtained a financial advantage of $13,599.10 from the Independent Legal Services Commission.

The matter has been adjourned to January 12.
