The trial of former FijiFirst MP Vijendra Prakash has started in the Suva High Court.
FICAC has charged Prakash with one count each of false information to a public servant and obtaining financial advantage.
Prakash is alleged to have falsely stated that his permanent place of residence was in Waidracia, Vunidawa, Nabuni, Naluwai, Naitasiri, and allegedly obtained $33,670 between August 2019 and March 2020.
While making their opening submission, the FICAC Counsel told the Court that they will prove that Prakash resided in Omkar Road in Narere and not in Naitasiri. The trial will resume at 2.15pm today.
