10:34 am on 31 January 2007

Politicians and cabinet ministers in former Fiji governments are the latest to be targetted in the military's clean-up campaign following the ousting of the Qarase administration.

Fiji TV reports that the military has put together a team to identify individuals who formed companies and benefited from deals with the government.

The military has confirmed that it has removed files from the office of the Registrar of Companies to search for information on all those involved in questionable deals including politicians and cabinet ministers.

The military spokesman, Major Neumi Leweni, says they are trying to find out the names of company directors and whether they benefited from underhand deals.

All the evidence gathered will be handed over to the soon to be appointed Independent Commission against Corruption.
