8:13 am on 19 April 2013

Air Vanuatu's deputy chief executive Officer Jean Paul Virelala has been dismissed for gross misconduct.

The chief executive, Joseph Laloyer, says Mr Virelala has been sacked for releasing a confidential audit report without the authorisation of the Board and CEO.

Mr Laloyer says the section of the report released highlighted mismanagement by previous management teams at Air Vanuatu but made no mention of Mr Virelala's periods as chief executive.
