Prosecution witness, Dylan Siliusi Kava has revealed in court that the videos done by Kishore Kumar making allegations against Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs, Lenora Qereqeretabua impacted her reputation.

Kumar is charged with allegedly making false claims on his facebook page, Kishore Kumar Publications regarding a porn video of Qereqeretabua in 2020.

Kava told the court that in 2020, there were several videos posted against Qereqeretabua on facebook by Kishore Kumar Publications.

He says the links to the videos were also sent to Qereqeretabua’s account as well.

Kava says he told the Assistant Minster about it who told them not to respond to anything.

However, they kept monitoring the page.

The witness says the content of the video was Kumar saying that he had seen Qereqeretabua's alleged porn video, referring to her as a porn Member of Parliament and the party as a porn party.

He says it was the time when Qereqeretabua had just entered parliament, and when she was making fiery statements in parliament.

Kava says whenever they went to communities for meetings or in town, people would question Qereqeretabua about the video, whether it was true or if there was a video.

He says Qereqerertabua would react to it and rightfully say no, there was no video.

Kava says Qereqeretabua later reported the matter to police when he was in the United States.

However, he helped her by providing screenshots of posts on the Kishore Kumar Publications page and provided it to the police on Qereqeretabua's request.

He says the videos had many reactions and shares and Qreqeretabua's parents would also ask about the video.

Kava says the videos were also shared on Fiji chats and other accounts.

The trial continues tomorrow.
