The Fiji In­de­pen­dent Com­mis­sion

Against Cor­rup­tion (FICAC) has ap­pealed against the no case to an­swer rul­ing and ac­quit­tal of for­mer CEO of the then Fiji Com­merce Com­mis­sion, Bobby Maharaj. Maharaj ap­peared at the High Court in Suva be­fore Judge Jus­tice Aruna Aluthge yes­ter­day.

Maharaj was charged with one count of abuse of of­fice by FICAC.

On the grounds of ap­peal by FICAC, it stated that the learned Mag­is­trate erred in fact and law by fail­ing to an­a­lyse the ev­i­dence ob­jec­tively in its en­tirety.

FICAC coun­sel Sera Fatafehi told the court that the ap­peal was filed within the time and sought time for the records.

The mat­ter will be called on July 30 for men­tion.
