The trial of former Post Fiji executives Peni Mau and Dhirendra Pratap has been shifted to May next year, the Suva High Court decided today.

The trial has been rescheduled to 1 May, 2013.

High Court Judge Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam said the postponement is to give time to the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) lawyers to obtain certain documents requested by the defence counsel.

Defence lawyer, Barbara Malimali stated that FICAC lawyers should be able to obtain the requested documents because they are documents of the Fiji Government and can not be destroyed.

Meanwhile, Pratap’s lawyer, Mehboob Raza was away in New Zealand and is expected to arrive in the country this Friday.
