The Fiji Trade and Investment Bureau CEO Annie Rogers and General Manager Tupou Raturaga have been sent on leave indefinitely.

Ms Rogers and Ms Raturaga were sent on leave last week to allow for an internal audit to be carried out on the financial systems within the FTIB after some anomalies came to light.

The two were to resume duties from this morning, however, Fiji Village reports the two were asked to collect their personal items and vacate the premises this morning.

The FTIB Chairman Adrian Sofield's office referred all queries to the Attorney General and Minister for Commerce Aiyaz Sayed Khiayum.

A spokesperson for the Attorney General says the Minister will call a media conference later today.
