A man has been given a suspended sentence after he was convicted for electoral offences by the Suva Magistrates Court.
Ronal Kumar was sentenced to seven months imprisonment suspended for two years and a fine of $500 and 50 days imprisonment in default for both of the counts by Magistrate Priyantha Liyange.
Kumar was charged by FICAC in 2014 for one count of offences in relation to ballot papers and two counts of undue influence.
In delivering the sentence, Magistrate Liyanage stated that the evidence revealed that Kumar had voted on the ballot paper that was issued to a person in her presence and interfered with her free exercise of a political right.
The matter has been adjourned to the 14th of next month.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
