The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has made an application seeking a Pecuniary Penalty Order pursuant to section 20 of the Proceeds of Crime Act against three convicted persons in a money laundering case.

The three, Josefa Saqanavere, Tuimoala Raoga and Savenaca Batibawa were convicted and sentenced last year to 13 years imprisonment with a non‑parole period of 12 years for money laundering.

The state has made an application before the Suva High Court in the civil jurisdiction seeking an order on the basis that the three convicted persons have benefitted from the serious offence.

The order is sought for the sum of $145,085.55 from Josefa Saqanavere, $309,124.50 from Tuimoala Raoga and $329,777.66 from Savenaca Batibawa.
