A former school manager facing charges of corruption entered a not guilty plea at the Labasa Magistrates Court on Monday.

Thomas Hewson was charged by the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption with one count of obtaining a financial advantage in June.

It’s alleged that from 2014-2015, the accused engaged in acts which resulted in him acquiring more than $45,000.

FICAC informed the court that there are partial admissions in the caution interview.

Hewson’s Legal Aid counsel informed the court that they would be challenging the caution interview and would file voir dire grounds accordingly.

The Resident Magistrate instructed defence to file and serve the voir dire grounds by the next mention date.

The matter has been adjourned to 23rd November with bail for the accused being extended.
