No case to answer submission ruling on Prime Fiji today
September 18, 2018 12:52 am
The Suva Magistrates court will today give a ruling on whether Prime Fiji Limited that is facing charges of forgery has a case to answer.
The company was charged by FICAC with one count of forgery and one count of Using Forged Documents in 2016.
FICAC alleges Prime Fiji submitted a falsified Westpac Security Bond of over three hundred and fifty-one thousand dollars to the Fiji Roads Authority while negotiating a street light renewal agreement.
The Defence counsels had filed a no case to answer submission last month.
During the trial last month Prime Fiji Limited had submitted that the company never intended to dishonestly induce the FRA.
They had further stated that their junior lawyer made a mistake and called the bank to inform them of the error.
However, the FICAC lawyer says the document submitted by Prime Fiji was false and they continued with business as usual.
The Suva Magistrates court will deliver its ruling this afternoon.
