Ex employees of AG Office discharged by court

Suva Magistrates Court this morning discharged two former workers of the Attorney General’s office after FICAC filed a nolle prosequi.

Shakti Samant Singh and Sebiuta Ravoka plus a third accused Samuela Foster were charged with stealing from the office last year.

FICAC revealed they will not take the case any further for the 2 accused so that they can be state witnesses for FICAC.

Foster is alleged to have manipulated the payroll system of the AG’s office to pay Singh and Ravoka $5,279 as meal allowance. Foster allegedly took half of the amount.

Singh was charged with causing a loss to the AG’s office by receiving $2,889 as meal allowance while Ravoka was charged with dishonestly taking $2,390.

The offences occurred between January – June 2012.

The case will be back in court on August 8.
