TWO women who laundered $582,244.82 from Pacific Theological College in Suva were sentenced by the High Court in Suva today.

Rosheen Raj who was described as the principal offender in this case has been sentenced to 11 years imprisonment with a non-parole period of 10 years; while Rine Sorby has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment with a non-parole period of nine years.

The duo was convicted of three counts of money laundering.

The incident took place between June 1, 2006, and November 30, 2012.

High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo said the sentences were designed to protect charitable organisations from such individuals and to also deter would-be offenders.
