Ben Padarath and lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma appeared before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili this morning charged with forgery.
Padarath told the court he has engaged a lawyer to represent him while Vakaloloma is represented by Filimoni Vosarogo.
CM Ratuvili told Padarath to bring his lawyer to court in the next sitting and a hearing date will be decided.
Vakaloloma requested to be excused, which was granted.
It is alleged that between the 14th and the 31st of December, 2009 the two men with the intent to defraud, forged a document namely the articles of association to BECP Engineering Construction Fiji Limited.
They allegedly made a false page of the Articles of Association by altering the particulars of a subscriber from Adishwar Padarath of 57 Duncan road in Domain, Suva to Voreqe Bainimarama of 228 Ratu Sukuna Road.
The case will be recalled on the 6th of November.
