Fiji Trades Union Congress president Daniel Urai still has not been refunded $1000 by the Magistrates Court in Suva.

Appearing before Magistrate Janaka Bandara, defence lawyer Navinesh Nand told the court that his client needs to get his refund which has been held back by the Court registry.

”The cash is still sitting in the registry and can be used by my client,” said Nand.

The refund is from a cash bond deposit which was paid by Urai in May to travel to Geneva for a meeting.

The court also heard that Urai will be attending a meeting organised by the Australia Council of Trade Union in Melbourneand will be back by October 6.

State lawyer Ilisapeci Whippy objected to his travel, however Nand said Urai will hopefully be leaving tomorrow morning.

It is alleged that Urai between August 1 and October 25, 2011, he intentionally urged Taniela and Raijeli Ligairi and others to overthrow the government.
