School teacher Alvin Savendra Raju has been charged by FICAC for corruption, accused of submitting unauthorised applications for the Fiji Water Education Grant program in 2020, obtaining $7,000 for himself.
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.
