Commentator faces FICAC charges

A sports commentator has been charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption with corruption-related offences.

Ajnal Anal Bhai has been charged with 51 counts of obtaining a financial advantage, by the Suva Magistrates Court, last week.

It is alleged that between May 2019 and May 2020 in the Central Division Ajnal Bhai engaged in fraudulent conduct by selling a piece of land in Makoi which he did not own.

He allegedly sold the land to genuine individuals and obtained a financial advantage of $106,100.

He obtained the financial advantage from these unsuspecting individuals knowing he was not eligible.

The Court has been served the first phase of disclosures.

Resident Magistrate Yogesh Prasad has granted Ajnal Bhai a non-cash bail of $5,000 and ordered him not to re-offend while on bail.

The Magistrate has also ordered the accused not to interfere with prosecution witnesses and to report to the FICAC Suva office once a month.

A stop departure order has also been issued.

The matter has been adjourned to 9 May for mention.
