Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry has been found guilty by all four assessors.
Chaudhry is guilty of failing to surrender foreign currency of about AUD$1.5 million.
The second charge is in relation to dealing in foreign currency without permission and the third charge relates to investing 1.5 million Australian dollars in Australia and New Zealand without permission from the Reserve Bank of Fiji.
Judge Justice Paul Madigan will deliver his judgment at 3pm today.
Chaudhry faces maximum imprisonment of two years or a penalty of three times more than the funds invested overseas.
After the coup of May 2000, Chaudhry visited India to gather support against his overthrow as Prime Minister.
On the tour, he received $1 million to help him and his family resettle out of Fiji.
