The Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde has decided that no charges will be laid against the Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, in relation to his alleged involvement in two bombing incidents in 1987.
The police file was sent to the DPP for an assessment of the evidence and a decision on whether any charges should be laid following a complaint that the Attorney General had been allegedly involved in two separate bombing incidents in 1987.
The DPP states that following a review of the police docket, it is their opinion that there is insufficient credible or reliable evidence to support any criminal charges being laid against the Attorney General and, therefore, the docket has been returned to police with the instruction not to charge and no further action is required.
The complainant, Veronica Malani had alleged that Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and his associates organised the making and detonation of home bombs around Viti Levu in order to injure and harm known Fijian targets sympathetic to the interim government, following the coups of May and September, 1987 by Sitiveni Rabuka.
Police had said earlier that initial information indicated that three people were charged for those alleged incidents and were subsequently dealt with in court.
Malani who is a former employee of the Land Transport Authority was charged by FICAC last year.
