A senior staff member of Parliament’s Secretariat has been sent home after complaints of sexual misconduct  allegedly involving her and two married SODELPA MPs.

The alleged incidents took place at a resort  in the West where Government MPs, Opposition MPs and senior Parliament Secretariat staff were attending a seminar.

When contacted yesterday, Secretary-General to Parliament, Viniana Namosimalua, said it was a sensitive issue which she did not wish to discuss.

Mrs Namosimalua said an inquiry was underway which would be completed by the end of this month.

“We are following procedures as this is an internal issue that we are dealing with,” she said.

Sources further said the senior staff member had been suspended for three months without pay and had been asked not to leave the country pending investigations.

When contacted last night, SODELPA leader, Sitiveni Rabuka, said he was not aware of the alleged incident.

According to the Parliament of the Republic of Fiji website, Parliament is supported by an administrative staff numbering around 70 people.

This included procedural, research, library, ICT, Hansard, committee, finance, human resources and general administration staff.
