The case against former Deputy General Manager of the Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF), Foana Nemani has been adjourned to 8 February 2013 for mention before a new trial judge, FICAC confirmed.

Nemani’s case was called before Justice Salesi Temo in the Suva High Court yesterday in her absence. The last known report FICAC heard of Nemani was in February 2010 that she was receiving medical treatment in New Zealand, but since then has failed to appear in court.

Earlier this year, upon submissions made by FICAC, Justice Priyantha Fernando had ruled
that Nemani could be tried in absentia under common law principles.

Nemani is charged with “extortion by public officers” and “abuse of office”. While she held the post of Deputy GM, Nemani was alleged to have defrauded FNPF by authorizing payment of responsibility allowance in the sum of $33,333.00 to the former General Manager Olota Rokovunisei and accepting $35,911.15 beyond her proper pay and emolument.
