The Suva Magistrates Court has ruled that lawyer Aseri Vakaloloma can reveal his discussions with Benjamin Padarath to the court.
They both are charged by Fiji Independent Corruption against Corruption with one count each of forgery.
It is alleged that in late October 2009, Padarath and Vakaloloma forged the Articles of Association of BECP Engineering Construction Fiji Ltd.
An Issue of priviledge was submitted by Defense as they claimed that discussions between both should be confidential as Vakaloloma was Padarath’s lawyer at the time of the offense.
They allegedly did this by creating a page and altering the particulars of subscribers from the address of Adishwar Padarath to the address of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
Vakaloloma allegedly signed as a witness to the signature while Padarath is alleged to have signed as one of the subscribers.
The matter has been adjourned to 17th.
