Three former employees of Goodman Fielder charged with fraudulent falsification of account and money laundering have been further remanded.
Rajat Maharaj has been charged with 56 counts of money laundering, Biren Lal has been charged with 50 counts of fraudulent falsification of account.
Jessie Mcgoon has been charged with seven counts of fraudulent falsification of account.
The three appeared before Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa at Suva Magistrates Court today.
It is alleged that between 2014 and 2015 the three were involved in transferring $699,000 to the account of a company belonging to Rajat Maharaj.
At that time Mcgoon and Lal were employed as finance assistants.
Defense lawyers applied for bail but DPP objected saying the money has not been recovered and a substantial amount was involved.
The matter will be recalled tomorrow for bail ruling.
