The Suva High Court today deferred trial date for former Post Fiji executives Peni Mau and Dhirendra Pratap.

High Court Judge Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam said the deferment is due to relevant issues to be submitted by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

The case has been adjourned to October 3, 2012 for mention and confirmation of the new trial date.

The court today heard that the FICAC has not submitted relevant disclosed documents to the defence lawyers and the court.

FICAC’s lawyer Rashmi Aslam also asked for some time to prepare for his submission.

Mau’s lawyer Barbara Malimali told the court that along with Pratap’s lawyer Mehboo Raza she has been waiting for the requested 2006 audit report from FICAC for a month now. She asked if the trial could start when they receive the report from FICAC.

She had also requested for personal financial transaction records of those Post Fiji employees who were recently added on as witnesses.
