Protected species?

A Chinese national found with $52,987.04 in foreign currency hidden in his luggage walked free from Nadi Magistrates Court after being charged for failing to declare foreign currency. According to the Fiji Sun he was acquitted after PLEADING GUILTY!! WTF? How does a guilty plea get an acquittal? We’ve all heard stories about Chinese ‘businessmen’ getting special treatment in government offices and this looks like it might be another case.

    I don’t think the chinaman was acquitted. he was fined and let go to enjoy his holiday with his family with the rest of his money minus the $2,000 fine.
