People’s Community Network National Director Semiti Qalowasa’s motion to vacate his plea will be heard next month.
Qalowasa who is charged in relation to inquiries into the controversial Lagilagi Housing project had pleaded guilty to his charges in the Suva Magistrates Court last month.
However, he has a new counsel now – who made an application to vacate his plea.
Qalowasa is charged with failure to furnish information to the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission.
The court heard that in January, Qalowasa allegedly failed to furnish documents to FCCC officers such as building plans, contracts, receipts, details of payments collected, audited financial reports, bank statements among other documents.
The matter has been adjourned to June 19th.
