Magistrate's Court Fine Enforcement Unit

The Fine Enforcement Unit was established in 2007 and is based at the Judicial Department at Government Buildings, Suva. The operation of the Fine Enforcement Unit is mobile in nature. They also go door to door for collection of fines which also includes the interior villages.

Purpose

To recover arrears of government revenue from traffic / criminal offenders that have been fined by the Courts in Fiji. Currently the ‘Fine Enforcement Unit’ is in full operation Fiji wide in collaboration with the respective Police Warrant Sections.

The primary focus

The Unit is to collect revenue and not to put offenders behind bars; they are user friendly therefore the Fine Enforcement Unit encourages fine defaulters to go to their nearest Magistrate’s Court Registry, Police warrant section or directly contact Fine Enforcement Unit for assistance if they know that they have unpaid fines pending.

Apart from executing committal warrants in traffic cases they also execute committal warrants in criminal cases where a fine is imposed and the offender has not paid the fine within the time limit ordered by Court.

Fine Payment

The fines can be paid through:

  • M-Paisa which came into effect from 01st September, 2011 - M-Paisa Account No. 20024.
  • Cash at registry
