Trio Charged With Bribery

Marika Lewayada, a former iTaukei Lands Trust Board Estate officer, along with Jason Zhong and Chiang Yu Sing, faced bribery charges in a Nadi Magistrates Court.

Lewayada allegedly accepted a bribe from Zhong and Chiang while at TLTB.

Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa granted each accused a $200 non-cash bail, with orders not to re-offend, surrender travel documents, and adhere to specific reporting conditions – Zhong and Yu Sing to the FICAC Suva Office and Totogo Police Station on the last Friday of each month respectively while Lewayada was ordered to report to the Lautoka Police Station every Saturday.

The case will be called again on March 21, for the second phase disclosures and prosecution confirmation on sureties.
