Former SODELPA MP, Salote Radrodro will be sentenced tomorrow as Suva High Court Judge Justice Dr. Thushara Kumarage has dismissed her motion in arrest of judgement and has imposed a $2,500 fine.
Radrodro has been found guilty of a count each of Giving False Information to a Public Servant and Obtaining Financial Advantage.
She falsely stated that her permanent place of residence was in Namulomulo Village, Nabouwalu, Bua and allegedly obtained $37,920.13 in parliamentary allowances between August 2019 and April 2020.
While delivering the judgement, Justice Dr. Kumarage says the court perceives that this application has been filed by Radrodro and her lawyer, Simione Valenitabua without any plausible and cogent legal arguments at the last stage of trial to prorogue the final step in the substantive matter pending in this court.
