The former Vice Chancellor of the Fiji National University Dr Ganesh Chand trial is scheduled to start in 2019 as the court diary for next year is full.
Chand is charged with one count of Abuse of Office.
The charge was laid by the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption.
It is alleged that Chand while being employed in the Public Service abused the authority of his office.
It is alleged he approved the payments for overseas medical treatment for the then Minister of Education and the Chairman of the FNU Council, Filipe Bole without the council’s approval.
He appeared in the High court yesterday where the defense informed the court that it will be filing applications with the court in relation to pre-trial conference matters.
The matter has been adjourned to 17th February 2018 to set a hearing date in 2019.
