Fiji's Independent Commission Against Corruption has charged the former vice-chancellor of the Fiji National University with abuse of office.

The Fiji Sun reports Ganesh Chand appeared before a court in Suva yesterday having been charged with abuse of office while being employed as a public officer.

Mr Chand was dumped as the university's vice-chancellor in December amdist a major investigation into the university's affairs by FICAC.

At the time, Education Minister Mahendra Reddy said it was an amicable parting of ways.

Yesterday, FICAC sought 21 days to file a second phase of information and disclosures, and Mr Chand was granted bail of 240 US dollars.
