Fiji's Permanent Secretary for Sugar says any recent increase in the price of sugar being sold in shops is illegal

Colonel Manasa Vaniqi says there have not been any discussions or any decision made with regards to increasing the price of sugar.

FBC News understands there could be an increase in sugar prices due to the high cost of imported sugar.

Vaniqi says a decision on this will only be made if a proposal is put forward.
