Former Roko Tui Rewa Savenaca Kamikamica was found not guilty of embezzlement and abuse of office by three assessors today.

Kamikamica was charged with two counts of embezzlement and one count of abuse of office by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

It was 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 was alleged that in December 2005 Kamikamica had 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 was 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.

Justice Priyanttha Fernando will give his judgment later this afternoon.
