FICAC charges Policeman for bribery

A Police Constable of the Fiji Police Force has been charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption with two counts of bribery.

It is alleged that on the 25th of May 2023 in the Western Division, Jotish Jaynendra Lal, whilst being employed as a Police Constable, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, solicited an advantage of $500 from an individual as a reward for or otherwise on account of him performing any act in his capacity as a public servant.

FICAC said it is further alleged that on the 26th of May 2023 in the Western Division, Lal whilst being employed as a Police Constable, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, accepted an advantage of $400 from a private individual as a reward for or otherwise on account of him performing any act in his capacity as a public servant.

The accused was served his first phase of disclosures.

Resident Magistrate Semi Babitu granted a non-cash bail of $1,000 and ordered the accused not to re-offend whilst on bail, not to interfere with prosecution witnesses along with other strict bail conditions, including reporting to the Namaka Police Station on the last Friday of each month between 6am to 4pm.

A stop-departure order has been issued against the accused.

The matter has been adjourned to 24 June for mention.
