Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs, Colonel Apakuki Kurusiga, has admitted that he’s years behind in auditing the books of his ministry. he said when he came to office he found that no financial audits had been carried since 1997. But now, he says, accountants are working on the 2003 financial report. And he says a selection of cases will bereferred to the Polie for investigation. Corruption in the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs was one of the reasons seizing power nearly 8 years ago, so why have we had to wait until now for an audit and the possibility of charges? And while we’re on the subject, where is the audit of the RFMF and all the unauthorised spending and fraudulent procurement that was notorious before the 2006 coup?
