Former Fiji Broadcasting Corporation board members Daniel Whippy and Champak Kapadia re-appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court this morning charged with forgery.

The duo has pleaded not guilty.

Defence lawyer Mehboob Raza is representing Whippy sought further time to enable him to prepare full submissions after going through the disclosures.

FICAC prosecutor Elenoa Leweni made no objections and added that prosecution would consider the representations that would be made and would inform all parties of their position.

It is alleged that they intended to defraud the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation by making a false document namely an extract of minutes of a meeting of the FBCL board purported to be held on March 19, 2004 knowing that such a meeting was not held..

The case will be recalled on August 9.
