The lawyer of the 6 senior members of Grace Road, Ronald Gordon says the other investigations being conducted by Police in relation to the company is different from the case that was in the Lautoka High Court today.
Gordon says he cannot comment on the investigations being carried out by the Police, however, his focus was on the rights of the six Korean Nationals.
“These people and I know that the media is putting this as a Grace Road matter but my instructions came that six people rights under the constitution have been breached and that is why we had come to the court for redress and we got the relief and they have been released since then and the matter has come to an end and regarding an investigations in Fiji or Korea I don’t not have an instructions or any comments.”
Gordon has also made it clear any other issues surrounding the investigations or with Korean Police being in the country is not under his jurisdiction.
Meanwhile, the 6 senior members of Grace Road who were earlier detained are now free to continue with their business.
This is after the Lautoka High Court granted a discontinuance on the matter today after it was filed by Gordon.
This basically meant the case on the 6 Grace Road senior members which was before the Court ceases from today.
The six were also not present in court today as they have all been released from detainment.
The six members were taken in following a raid at the Grace Road Headquarters in Navua on Tuesday night.
Last month, the Grace Road Church Founder – Shin Ok-ju was arrested in Korea on allegations of incarceration, assault and the exploitation of foreign currency.
