Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili has re-issued the bench warrant against Jale Baba after Baba failed to appear in court today.
Baba had earlier pleaded guilty to publishing falsified Voter Lists and other false information related to a list on Facebook in 2018, which he knew was untrue.
He had denied the charge in August last year but had later indicated to the court through his counsel that he wanted to change his plea.
The case has been adjourned till the 13th of next month.
