The Magistrates Court in Suva today denied bail for Prime Minister’s Office employee Rudra Maharaj who faces one count of bribery.

The Court heard he had accepted a bribery of $12,000, a $10,000 cheque, and $2,000 cash on hand.

Defence lawyer Diven Prasad said his client has the right to be bailed out of custody and they are also willing to cooperate with the investigation.

Prasad told Magistrate Janaka Bandara that Maharaj is a family man with 6 grandchildren and his son is about to get engaged.

He said Maharaj who is also involved with the Constitution Commission is a very important person in the government.

He added his client is still innocent and is not a hard criminal who should not be trusted.

FICAC lawyer Rasmi Aslam said the allegation against Maharaj is very serious and that it involves a huge sum of money.

Aslam said the matter is of public interest and the man has the high standard at the PM’s office.

He said the public will lose confidence in him.

The case has been adjourned to October 12, 2012 and  Maharaj will remain in FICAC custody for further investigation.
