High court Judge Justice Thushara Rajasinghe has asked the State in the case of Seta and Geeta Ram to find the whereabouts of second accused.
Geeta Ram has not made an appearance in court since proceedings began last year.
Geeta Ram who is believed to be living in Australia and her sister Seta Sanjana Ram who is still in Fiji are charged with 35 counts, including 17 counts of Trafficking in Persons, 16 counts of Obtaining Property by Deception and two counts of Money Laundering.
The two allegedly facilitated the travel of 17 Fijians who were exploited and became victims of human trafficking in New Zealand between April and September of 2014.
The case has been adjourned to the 30th of March.
