The case against the former Prime Minister and SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka has been rescheduled to begin tomorrow.
Rabuka’s lawyer Queen’s Counsel Ian Lloyd today said the defence would no longer challenge the caution interview.
Lloyd also suggested that FICAC provide them a bundle of the witness statements by 2pm today so they may proceed with the trial proper tomorrow.
It is alleged that on December 29, 2017, Rabuka provided a false declaration of assets and liabilities to the Supervisor of Elections by failing to provide information, namely the tax liability with Fiji Revenue and Customs Service in the amount of 316 thousand ,956 dollars and 20 cents, the investment and interest income with said Raghwan Construction Ltd in the amount of $120,000 contrary to the Political Parties Act.
He is also charged for allegedly breaching his bail condition.
It is alleged that on June 18 this year, Rabuka allegedly approached and interfered with one of the prosecution witnesses.
The trial will begin proper at the Magistrates Court in Suva at 10am tomorrow.
