TI Fiji queries appointment process of new Fiji Broadcasting CEO

1:56 pm on 21 November 2007

Transparency International Fiji has called on the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation Limited to make public its recruitment process for accountability and transparency.

This comes after criticism of the appointment of Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum as the station's new chief executive.

TI chairman Hari Pal Singh says the way he was chosen should be made public as he is the brother of the interim Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum was a Fiji TV journalist before moving to New Zealand.
