While giving evidence in Court, Radrodro said the Vodafone Fiji Search Warrant report produced as evidence actually corroborates her movements in fulfilling her parliamentary obligations.

When questioned about her residential address recorded in her passport details, utility bills, and correspondence with the Land Transport Authority, FRCS and other statutory bodies, Radrodro said she did not change it to ensure consistency in records kept by the different agencies.

The trial will start at 9am today.
