Former FNPF employee Jack Hiramatsu and former TLTB employee Adi Mara Qaranivalu are expected to appear in the Suva Magistrates Court today on fresh charges.

The two who allegedly used forged legal documents to allegedly obtain $49,300 from the Fiji National Provident Fund with six others appeared before Magistrate Liyanage Wickramasekara yesterday and were further remanded in custody.

Police Prosecutor Pauliasi Lutunauga asked Magistrate Wickramasekara for the two to be remanded in police custody as they will be appearing in court today on fresh charges.

Magistrate Wickramasekara says the law does not authorize him to remand the two in police custody and that Lutunauga can speak to remand authorities for the caution interview to be conducted.

Hiramatsu has been charged with five counts of forgery for allegedly forging various legal documents to purchase land. 

Adi Mara Qaranivalu has been charged with one count of forgery for allegedly forging a Certificate of Title.
