Samoa's former Electoral Commissioner, Papalii Malietau, is facing 12 charges including forgery and fraud.
The accused appeared in the supreme court on Monday but did not enter a plea because the prosecution charges have not been finalised.
Three years ago, Malietau's service was terminated as a result of a Public Service Commission's inquiry into breaches of his duties and misconduct.
Two months ago police launched an investigation.
The court has adjourned the matter for two weeeks.
