August 16, 2018 5:07 am
Six senior members of the Grace Road group will be produced in Lautoka High court tomorrow morning.
A further interim injunction was sought by the detainees’ lawyers Ronald Gordan and Wasu Pillay to prevent three more senior members from being deported from Fiji late this afternoon and further orders were granted by the Lautoka High court.
Yesterday interim injunction was sought for Jung Yong Kim, Beomseop Shin and Sung Jin Lee and a further injunction was sought for Byeongjoong Lee, Chul Na and Jinsook Yoon today.
The order has been issued by writ of Habeas Corpus which means that the Director of Immigration, Commissioner of Corrections and the Commissioner of Police, whoever has custody of the six Korean nationals, must produce them in person before the court tomorrow and explain to the court as to why they were detained in the first place.
The six are believed to be shareholders in the Grace Road Group of Companies.
Gordon says he has been informed by his client that they have not committed any criminal or immigration offence and there are no allegations against them.
He says they’ve received from Police confirmation that the six are not being detained by the Police.
He says his clients have informed him that they have valid visas while the other three have applied extension of their visas and their applications are pending.
The six will be produced before Judge Justice Anare Tuilevuka at 10.30am.
