More i-Taukei Land Trust Board employees have been sent home for their alleged involvement in the theft of landowners money.

The latest staff to be suspended is a woman who was on work attachment at the TLTB headquarters in Suva.

This after a substantive amount of money was found in her account.

Along with this attaché, another employee has been sent home.

At the TLTB office in Lautoka, an officer working in the accounts division was also sent home accused of pocketing landowners money.

In Labasa, a Finance clerk is also been suspended on the same suspicion.

The four are the latest to join three other TLTB officials accused of drawing off landowners money into their personal accounts. Two of whom have been sacked.

The third officer is on suspension pending investigations.

The Criminal Investigations Department and FICAC are investigating the thefts.
