The Magistrates Court in Suva today revoked the bail of Suva businessman Benjamin Padarath after he failed to attend his case last week.

Magistrate Janaka Bandara said he had to revoke the bail because the conditions were violated and ordered that Padarath be kept in remand.

Padarath is alleged to have given information he knew to be false via text messages to the Director of Immigration in Fiji Nemani Vuniwaqa on January 23, last year.

It is also alleged that Padarath intended to cause Vuniwaqa to include the name of one Paul Freeman on the Fiji Immigration watch list, which the Director Immigration ought not to be.

Padarath’s lawyer Rajendra Chaudhry requested if the court could give him 14 days to prepare in terms of his clients logistics.

Chaudhry said Padarath will have to come to Suva for the adjournment date as he is currently in remand at Lautoka.

Bandara has adjourned the matter for mention on September 25, 2012.

Meanwhile, before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili Padarath also appeared to a charge with one count of using abusive language in a public place.

His case will also be called for mention on September 25, 2012.
