A business woman who allegedly posted on social media regarding the closure of a boarding school has been granted bail.
Faith Grace appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court this afternoon.
She is charged with one count of Malicious Act under Section 15A of the Public Order Act.
It is alleged that earlier this month, Grace had posted on social media that the government would close down Queen Victoria School.
She also made claims that some teachers who have reached the age of 55 years, would be asked to retire and allegedly called for a protest against the matter.
Grace has been released on a bail bond of $2000 with two sureties who have signed on a surety bond of $2000 each.
Magistrate Wickramasekara ordered Grace to surrender her travel documents, and not to travel outside Viti Levu without the court’s permission.
He has also ordered her to refrain from publishing or commenting on any controversial subjects on social media platforms.
The case has been adjourned to September 21, for a plea date.
