The case of Suva businessman Ben Padarath charged with giving false information to a public servant has been moved to September 11, 2012 for mention.

The case could not proceed today because the accused was still in Lautoka.
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 voir dire (trial within a trial) is set for November 26-27.

The accused mention case will again be heard at the Suva Magistrates Court.
