Former Fijian Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase has been found guilty of corruption charges.
They include six counts of abuse of office and three counts of discharging his duty with respect to property in which he has a private interest.
Qarase had a blank stare, sitting in the dock as Justice Fernando handed down his judgement in a packed court room in Suva.
His lawyer Tupou Draunidalo then applied for bail pending sentencing, which has been granted.
