The appeal case for former Prime Minister and SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka was called at the High Court in Suva this afternoon.

The case was presided by the Chief Justice, Justice Anthony Gates.

The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption had filed an appeal against the decision of the Suva Magistrates Court to acquit Rabuka last week.

In delivering his judgment last week, Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa ruled that prosecution had failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that SODELPA was a registered political party and that Rabuka was an office holder in the party.

Rabuka was charged by FICAC for his alleged failure to declare his assets, liabilities and income contrary to the Political Party Act.

FICAC had confirmed that they had filed an appeal to the High Court and stated they had outlined 15 grounds of fundamental legal and factual errors as grounds of appeal.
