Chinese company accused of failing Fiji workers

10:32 am on 26 October 2012

The Water Authority of Fiji says a major Chinese contractor is failing to meet its obligations to Fiji workers and could be closed.

It says the China Railway 5 Company hasn't paid up the superannuation contributions to the FNPF as expected.

The Authority's CEO, Opetaia Ravai, has told FBC News that the China Railway 5 Company has only registered 30 of its 120 workers.

He says if they continue to willfully not provide FNPF deductions for the Fiji employees, they will be taken to task.
