Fiji’s former Roko Tui Rewa Savenaca Kamikamica this morning pleaded not guilty before the High Court in Suva.

Kamikamica appeared before Justice Priyantha Fernando for two counts of embezzlement and an amended count of abuse of office which the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption (FICAC) brought against him in June this year.

Kamikamica was without his lawyer Tobia Ravuniwa but was informed by Justice Fernando that his trial will proceed in August 6.

It is alleged that while employed as the Roko Tui Rewa by the Fijian Affairs Board in 2005 Kamikamica fraudulently applied $40 which he received as Development Assistant Scheme fund on account of Rewa Provincial Council for a purpose other than that for which was entrusted to him.

It is alleged that in December 2005 Kamikamica have fraudulently applied $1195 which he received as Development Assistant Scheme fund on account of Rewa Provincial Council for a purpose other than that for which was entrusted to him.

it is alleged that in March 2006 he abused office and without lawful authority he directed that $11,000 be removed from the Development Assistance Scheme fund of Rewa Provincial Council into an imprest account for purposes other than it had been intended for which was prejudicial to the rights of Fijian Affairs Board and the Rewa Provincial Council.

The case has been adjourned for mention on July 16.
