Plea for business man October 4


A Honiara businessman James Fang will likely enter his plea on his next appearance on October 4.

This is after the prosecution confirmed that investigation on the case has completed and disclosures served to the defence lawyer.

The case was mentioned at the Honiara Magistrate yesterday and after all the submission was made, court adjourned the case for the next 14 days.

Mr Fang is alleged of forging and uttered documents.

He is the owner of Fangs franchise in Honiara.

He is facing a charge of Forgery and Uttering in relation to incidents which occurred sometimes this year.

The charges stem from an extensive enquiry into the legitimacy of a document emailed to the Inland Revenue Division.

The document was a letter purporting to have been authored by a Government Minister, authorizing the waiving of $14 000 000 in tax payable to the Government of Solomon Islands, through the Inland Revenue Division of the Ministry of Finance & Treasury.

Investigations revealed that signature on the letter were not that of the Minister.
