Fiji Roads Authority’s lawyer Devinesh Sharma has told the Suva High Court that MWH has not been complying with the orders of the court by not supplying them with some relevant documents.

Sharma says that some information that the FRA is seeking has not been provided by its former contractor, MWH.

Sharma told Judge Justice Lyone Seneviratne that FRA needs to look at all documents in relation to the work that has been done on the roads and bridges.

Sharma told the court that time sheets, diary notes, file notes and project diaries have not been provided by the FRA which relate to the work carried out by MWH.

He says the FRA wants to look at everything.

MWH’s lawyer Phule Low told the court that orders made by the court does not say that MWH has to provide all documents.

She says they have provided documents pertaining to the contracts and the FRA is now asking more than what they had asked for.

Justice Seneviratne then told both parties that they have to decide which documents are relevant.

The matter has been adjourned to the 29th of this month where both parties will make submissions on the relevant documents that the MWH has to submit.

The Fiji Roads Authority had earlier filed an application in the High Court regarding MWH withdrawing from their contract which was supposed to end on December 31st last year following the deportation of two of its workers.

MWH was then told by the court to provide all the design documents to FRA.

These are both hard and soft copies of the design documents.
