Radrodro exercises right to remain silent

FORMER Works and Public Utilities spokesperson Sainiana Radrodro has opted to exercise her right to remain silent in her case.

Defence counsel Filimoni Vosarogo confirmed this in court yesterday after Magistrate Waleen George questioned Mr Vosarogo on whether his client would exercise her right to remain silent.

Mr Vosarogo confirmed it and also indicated to prosecutions that it is in the view of the defence not to call any witnesses and just proceed to file submissions.

Magistrate George has instructed both parties to file written closing submission simultaneously by April 27.

Mrs Radrodro was initially charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) on 11 counts of obtaining financial advantage by deception but now faces nine counts because prosecutions had made an application to withdraw two counts during the hearing in August 2016.

It is alleged that Mrs Radrodro obtained a total of $5760 over nine separate occasions.

The case has been adjourned to May 21.

Bail has been extended for Mrs Radrodro.
