Fiji’s Independent Commission against Corruption has increased their witnesses to 21 in the case against former Post Fiji Managing Director Peni Mau and Manager Finance Dhirendra Pratap, the Suva High Court heard today.

Mau’s counsel Barbara Malimali said Pratap’s lawyer Mehboo Raza and herself were not informed of the extra witnesses and that they were advised by FICAC that the names will be disclosed during the trial.

She said Raza and herself will also need to cross-examine the witnesses.

She further told the court they need more documents from FICAC and they have no more applications to submit to the court.

Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam adjourned the case to be called again for mention on September 12, 2012.

Meanwhile, the court has received the amended agreed facts from FICAC which both defence lawyers signed.

Mau is charged with one count of abuse of office while Pratap is charged with one count of aiding and abetting abuse of office and false certificate by public officers.

They will appear for trial on October 3, 2012.
