FICAC CONFIRMS COMPLAINTS RECEIVED FROM THE FIJIAN ELECTIONS OFFICE
Posted by Media Team 17 January 2024
The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) confirms that it has received the referral of the three complaints from the Fijian Elections Office against the former FijiFirst General Secretary, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
The referral from the Fijian Elections Office was received on 29 September 2023 and the complaint was then referred for legal assessment. FICAC could not proceed further in terms of an investigation due to the sudden demise of the former Commissioner Ratu David Toganivalu.
Per the FICAC Act under Section 12 and Section 13, all investigations and enquiries into suspected or alleged occurrence of an offence are sanctioned by the Commissioner or Deputy Commissioner.
FICAC confirms that since the appointment of the Acting Deputy Commissioner in late November 2023, investigation into the referral has commenced and is currently ongoing, therefore, divulging any further details about the case publicly may jeopardize the outcome of the case.
