A former top police officer charged with one count of bribery has had her bail extended and her case adjourned to 31 October for plea.

Rehana Rubeena Nisha Sen while being employed as an assistant Superintendent of Police is alleged to have solicited $3000 from Praveena Devi the wife of a Atunaisa Muliaceva who was in police custody.

Sen appeared before Suva Magistrate Sufia Hamza yesterday without her lawyer, Nemani Tuifagalele who could not attend her case as he was engaged in a hearing in the Nadi court.

Sen confirmed with Magistrate Hamza that she had received the disclosures from FICAC.

It is alleged that between 30 September 2012 to 3 October 2012, Sen without lawful authority or reasonable excuse solicited an advantage of $3000 from Devi for having carried out the release of Muliaceva from police custody without being charged.

It is alleged that Muliaceva gave a false name when he was taken into police custody after he was found heavily drunk. He was arrested for giving false information. The alleged offence happened when Muliaceva was released where Sen is alleged to have contacted Devi from 1 October 2012 soliciting money from the couple.
