June 26, 2019 11:21 am
The case involving Freesoul Real Estate Development (Fiji) PTE Ltd has again been adjourned.
This as the Nadi Magistrate was not present to hear the case on Monday.
The company is charged with one count of undertaking unauthorized development.
It is also charged with a count of failure to comply with a prohibition notice under the Environment Management Act 2005.
This is also the second time the case has been adjourned because no Magistrate was present.
The company is alleged to have failed to comply with a Prohibition Notice issued by the Waterways and Environment Ministry in June last year.
This also includes the carrying out of development activity without an approved Environmental Impact Assessment Report.
Under the Environment Management Act, if convicted, the company and its directors face fines of up to $750,000 or a term of imprisonment of up to 10 years, or both.
The case will now be called on the 29th of August.
