The former Suva politician, Ben Padarath, has appeared in court as earlier predicted by Coupfourpointfive, on a failed plot to overthrow the dictator Frank Bainimarama last year.
A draft decree aimed at allowing the President of Fiji, Epeli Nailatikau, to authorise the ousting of Bainimarama is said to have been found in the home of Padarath, the nephew of former land force commander Pita Driti.
The FijiVillage confirmed today Padarath has been charged with allegedly concealing false government documents and is to appear again in the Suva Magistrates Court in early April.
'Evidence' there was a plot to overthrow Bainimarama last year, was found at the home of Padarath by military soldiers while they were investigating the con man for alleged fraud with lawyer Renee Lal.
Padarath was beaten and was in hospital nursing injuries until he was shuffled earlier this week to the court, where he was represented by the lawyer son (Rajendra Chaudhry) of the Fiji Labour Party leader, Mahendra Chaudhry.
Brigadier General Mohammed Aziz is also implicated in last year's attempted plot, which was not executed in the end.
Our information is that Driti and the former 3FIR Commander, Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara who was arrested by military earlier this week, have also been charged although they were not seen at court today.
