THE Fiji Revenue and Customs Services (FRCS) are now represented by Devanesh Sharma of R Patel Lawyers, in a case brought on by terminated employees.

The matter of 43 former FRCS employees, who filed proceedings against the FRCS, was called before High Court judge Justice Mohamed Javed Mansoor.

FRCS was formerly represented by their in-house counsel Edward Eterika.

Justice Mansoor granted the applicants until Friday to reply to the respondents’ defence in the matter, and 14 days thereafter to file and serve their affidavit verifying documents.

The respondents sought 28 days to file their affidavit verifying documents.

The former FRCS employees filed the case after they were made redundant and their jobs were advertised as vacancies.

The matter will be called again on February 28 for mention.
