Two people who are facing charges of money laundering and fraudulent falsification of accounts will take their plea on the 10th of December this year.

Rajat Maharaj is charged with one count of money laundering while Biren Lal has been charged with 26 counts of fraudulent falsification of accounts.

They allegedly defrauded Goodman Fielder International Fiji Limited of $646,994.

It is alleged that a large sum of money was misappropriated through the procurement process of Goodman Fielder between 2014 and 2015 at their Vatuwaqa office.

It is also alleged that the two were involved in transferring the money to a company that belonged to Rajat Maharaj.

At the time of the alleged incident, Lal used to work for Goodman Fielder.
