Fiji corruption commission searches NGO

9:59 am on 8 August 2014

The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption Office has executed a search warrant at the office of the Citizen's Consitutional Forum in Suva.

FBC News reports the search was made after the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, made a complaint about CCF's panel discussion on free and fair elections, and referred the matter to FICAC.

It reports the Forum's head, Akuila Yabaki, says the CCF displayed full compliance and disclosure with FICAC's investigation.

Reverend Yabaki says the CCF has taken down the video of the discussion from its website and has cancelled three other panel discussions relating to next month's election.

He says attempts to arrange a meeting with Mr Saneem to discuss the issue have been unsuccessful.
