FICAC Charges Man for Illegal Property Sale in Kinoya

A businessman accused of selling a property in Kinoya, which did not belong to him, has been charged by the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

Nahroon Buksh, who is alleged to have passed himself off as a licensed Real Estate Agent and acquired $6,000 from a couple interested in purchasing the property, is facing one count of Obtaining A Financial Advantage by Deception.

The incident is said to have occurred between 10 December 2020 and 23 August 2021.

Buksh appeared before Magistrate Low in Suva, where he was granted non-cash bail of $1,000. He was ordered not to re-offend while on bail, not to interfere with prosecution witnesses, and to report to the FICAC Suva Office once a month. He was also ordered to surrender all travel documents to the court.

The matter has been adjourned to 22 May 2024 for mention to check on the second phase of disclosures and Buksh’s legal representation.
