The Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) has ordered a full board of inquiry on allegations of embezzlement involving funds in the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

This was confirmed to the Fiji Sun yesterday by the RFMF chief of staff, Brigadier-General Mohammed Aziz.

“I can confirm to you that a full board of inquiry will now look into the embezzlement of the military funds,” Brigadier-General Aziz said.

He said five military personnel from the pay section were allegedly involved.

The five suspects were in military custody from September during investigations.

Now that the board of inquiry is in place, according to Brigadier-General Aziz, the suspects were now back in their homes and have to report to the board when necessary.

The five are on suspension without pay, he said.
