Our Elders always teach us not to lie and sometimes this is something we take lightly.

A 27-year-old taxi driver from Nadi has been charged with one count of giving false information to a public servant.

The driver reported to Namaka Police that he was allegedly assaulted and robbed by four youths in front of a shop in Namaka.

It is alleged he informed Police that the youths later drove off with his vehicle which was found abandoned a few hours later with damages to the front left side.

Police say from the evidence gathered and statements of all witnesses, it was established that the 27-year-old had given false information.

The man later admitted that he was involved in an accident, and came up with the scenario because it was a company vehicle used as a taxi.

He will be produced in court tomorrow.

The truth will always come out
