Former Airports Fiji Limited CEO Ratu Sakiusa Tuisolia has had his bail extended after appearing in the High Court today on corruption charges.

Tuisolia’s appearance in the dock was brief.

His case is still in the preliminary stages and a hearing date is yet to be set.

High Court judge Justice Daniel Gounder adjourned the case to September 4 this year for mention.

On February 11, 2008, the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption charged Tuisolia with 22 counts of abuse of office and 22 counts of false pretense.

The charges spanned over 2005 to 2007 whilst he was at the helm of Government-owned AFL.

He has pleaded not guilty to all the allegations.

Former Commissioner Central Inoke Devo also appeared in the High Court today over charges brought by FICAC.

His case has been adjourned to next Friday.
