The Suva Magistrates Court has transferred the case of Senior Staff of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Shameem Khan who is charged with corruption related offences to the Suva High Court.

Khan was charged by FICAC with one count each of Abuse of Office and General Dishonesty Causing a Loss.

He had pleaded not guilty to charges in the Suva Magistrates Court.

Khan allegedly prevented the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service from obtaining revenue of $4,118,994.08 from January 2016 to May 2017.

He allegedly prepared an investigation report with false contents which allowed this loss to occur.

Magistrate Deepika Prakash delivered in her ruling that given the seriousness of the offence, the amount involved and the high public office held by Khan, the case is an appropriate one for the High Court to deal with.

The matter has been adjourned to the 1st of August.

Khan who is the Director Intelligence, Compliance and Investigations of FRCS has been sent on leave.
