Findings to determine CEO’s fate
The chief executive officer of a major company in the country will be sent home if a probe currently underway substantiates corrupt dealings.
As this edition went to press last night the chief executive and the company's board chairman still had not responded to earlier queries from the Fiji Sun.
The Prime Minister's Office has confirmed that investigations are continuing on the chief executive officer of a major company for alleged corruption.
The investigation is centered at a big payout received by one of the company's managers following his resignation from the company.
The manager's resignation, according to reliable sources came about, after the Government discovered of his corrupt practices in allowing the CEO to enjoy two salary packages. Apart from her normal salary, the CEO was also receiving the salary as board chairman of one of the subsidiary companies.
It was revealed that it was through this connection that led to the payout of $155,000 to the manager in addition to a company car (authorised by the CEO) even though the receiver was not entitled to it.
The source said this forced the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama to intervene and initial investigations conducted have substantiated the matter.
Commodore Bainimarama then directed that the money and the car be returned. To date, according to the source, only the car and $50,000 have been recovered.
Commodore Bainimarama has confirmed that investigations are continuing while the CEO and the Chairman of the Company chose not to respond to the queries sent by the Fiji SUN.
