The matter was called before Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa at the Suva Magistrates Court.

Mr Rabuka entered the first day of the trial yesterday in relation to his alleged failure to declare his assets, liabilities and income contrary to the Political Party Act.

Sam Savumiramira appeared on behalf of the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption(FICAC) while Filimoni Vosarogo appeared for Mr Rabuka.
