He is alleged to have submitted the application on behalf of two teachers without their knowledge.

Raju appeared before a Magistrates Court in Nadi yesterday. He was granted non-cash bail of $500, imposed conditions, and issued a stop departure order.

The first phase of disclosures was made, and the case is adjourned to May 20, 2023.
